    Does the Hop Use drop down impact IBU calc, or is it for information purposes only?

    Also, which do you use for a mid boil addition, ie, flavoring @ 30 mins? ( can you add "flavoring")

    Re: Hop use drop down.

    The Hops Use field only changes IBUs for FHW and Mash options. First Wort is given a 20 minute boil time, and Mash is given a 5 minute boil time.

    A 30 minute hops addition will contribute substantial bitterness, so I would suggest marking that as a boil addition.

    Aroma additions are generally for 5 minutes or less, but they are treated the same in terms of IBUs.

    There is another thread going with the idea of adding 'Whirlpool' and 'Hop Back' as additional hop use options.
