    First wort hopping is said to increase hop utilisation with about 10%, but according to the recipe editor on Brewers Friend the opposite happens. Bug in the code?

    It's not a bug, but it's wrong just the same!

    We are fixing it, and have been aware of it for several months. For now, the work around is to put the hops in as 75 minute boil hops, but really use it for FWH.
