IMPORTANT NOTICE - HOP ADDITIONS
Brewer's Best® uses only premium grade hops packaged by Hopunion. These nitrogen-purged hop sachets state the aroma characteristic of each hop variety. This should not be confused with adding hops to the wort for bittering, flavoring, aroma or dry hop additions (the hop packages are not labeled "bittering", "flavoring", "aroma" or "dry hop".) Please see the Brew Day Schedule section of the recipe/instructions included with your kit as it will state the variety of hop, proper addition time, and quantity to be added to the boil.
With hops it's all about the time you add the hops to the boil. If you're using a hop type for bittering it always goes in at the beginning of the boil, as the longer you boil a hop the more IBU's or bittering quality extracted. If you use a hop for flavoring you generally add it between 30 minutes and 10 minutes remaining in the boil, as less time in the boil will retian more flavoring characteristics. Lastly, when you use a hop for aroma it is usually added between the last five minutes and flame out, so that you only extract the aroma of the hop.
