G'day all, I'm brewing a dark larger and I was cross checking with brewing classic styles. Jamil advises to do a 90 min boil. Does this mean I let it boil for half hour before first hop edition?

Cheers

Many people do that, as they want the extra 30 minutes to volatilise the SMM (DMS precursor) from the wort. You can add hops at 90 mins if you want, but it depends what you're after specifically.

Yes.

Dark lagers & ales are my priority now in preparation for Canberra's approaching winter. eg. just started drinking two schwarzbier recipes sourced from Jamil's "... Classic ..." and one from the magazine "Beer & Brewer". Note: Jamil's & Ross's (in the AHB database) are almost identical... Both recipes nice and no favourite to date. Munich amounts is the biggest difference between the two.

Jamil/Ross:

Munich 56% Pils 32% Crystal (light) 4% Chocolate 4% Roast Barley 2% Carafa 2%

Mag:

Munich 28% Pils 48% Wheat 15% Crystal 5% Carafa 4%
