comment Boil size, ABU's and adding LME
Thanks for the quick response. So part 1 is answered, and losing more acid to the break makes sense, but I'm still unclear on the crux of part 2. The chart shows U% is a product of boil time and gravity; so if you change the gravity half way through the boil by adding LME how does that affect your U%? (Not to mention adding DME afterwards). What I mean is can you get a larger absorption of acids before the LME is added? And how does the final gravity once all sugar is added including DME relate to the actual ABU. Is that constant regardless of when the sugar is added?
