Does FWH add any bitterness???, and if so, can i work out how much????. I have done this a few times, and i believe it does add bitterness, but i dont know how much. Any advice would be appreciated.

P.S i use beertools, not promash.

If you allow between 5 - 8 % increase in bitterness you will be very close.

Just monitor it for a couple of brews and you'll find a figure that suits your system.

For me it is 6%

Thanks chiller, i FWH for flavour, but im starting to brew a lot of bitters ( my house ale ), all with high BU:GU ratios, so i need to be a little more accurate, otherwise, i'll turn my mouth inside out hahahaha!.
