    Hello I'm getting ready to brew this one The Gown Lifter 2 https://www.brewersfriend.com/homebrew/recipe/view/371366/the-gown-lifter-2

    It calls for 2lbs of Dry Malt Extract - Munich. On the instructions it does not say when to add that. So I figure it must be after cooling and aerate the wort.

    When can be added?
    (I will dilute in hot water, cool down then add)


    Cheers!

    Add the dry extract at the very end of the boil. It will dissolve better in the hot wort and also sanitize the extract.

    Agreed, just when you turn the heat off should be good, no risk of scorching it then.

    Thank you Hawkbox. Reading this correctly, you mean right when about to cool the wort.


    Cheers!

    yeah....still hot enough to kill stuff but no boil over, no scorch...give it a few stirs to help with uniform spread and further dissolving like whirlpooling then drop in your chilling coil...if you do it that way.

    Exactly. Basically turn the heat off, add the sugar in while stirring, give it a couple minutes just to make sure it's mixed in with stirring, chill the wort.
    Boom. Roberts your mothers brother.

    Would you add whirlfloc to this brew?

    Completely optional. In a darker beer, haze doesn't really show up as much as a lighter colored beer. But it doesn't hurt to add it either.

    I personally add whirlfloc to every brew, and cold crash as well.
    Even the Hazy's, and yes, they stay hazy.

    I put whirlfloc in everything too, but it's entirely a preference thing.
