So I am getting ready to do my first batch next weekend. I have a recipe and been doing some reading and I think I over thunk (think) things.
When it says add hops at 60 min in the boil. Does that mean 60 min into the boil or 60 min from the end of boil (if this was a 90 min boil would be a 30 into the boil itself)?
I think I made this may too much more complicated than it should be.

It means 60 min. from the end of the boil.

all hop additions are in relation to the end of the boil

^^^^^^ What they said!

Good luck with the first brew.

Have you read Palmer's book...."How to Brew"???? It's a MUST read for all newbies, answers questions you didn't even know you had.

Thanks that's what I thought.
I did read Palmer's book and then start to read some recipes and stuff and go all confused.

Yes, it's always how many minutes are LEFT in the boil when you add them.
Good Luck!
