ok, now I'm confused....again or further, not sure yet.
I am brewing my first attempt at other than a k n k beer. The kit came with Morgans Amarillo and Cascade finishing hops satchels. The recipe that came with the pack says on day 4 to put the tea bags in the fermentor and leave till bottling. All seemed simple. Today at the LHBS, which isn't so local, the guy said 'you have to boil the hops for 30 to 40 minutes before putting them in you fv'. This has confused hell out of me. The pack says to put bag in a cup of boiling water and put fluid and bag into fv, the instructions says put the bags only in on day 4, and lbhs dude says boil hops first. As Im at day 2 of brewing, can someone set me straight on this. I still plan to just throw the bags in as instructions say, but woujld appreciate some direction by you gurus.
