Title: Molasses - When to add in boil
Post by: AJAlexander on November 05, 2020, 06:00:26 PM
Hey folks,

I found a holiday ale recipe which calls for Molasses to be added during the boil, but doesn't say when to add.  Does this mean it should be added at the beginning of the boil?

Thanks!

I usually add molasses during the last 5 minutes of the boil.  You really don't get anything more out of it if added sooner.

When adding it, I stir the wort for a good 1 to 2 minutes afterwards to prevent it from falling to the bottom of the kettle and scorching or being left behind when I drain out the wort.
