Welcome to the homeBBBrew board!
Like the BBB, the homeBBBrew board is not a club, just a place to talk about making beer. Is there a swap you would like to see happen? If we can find a few others who have something similar then lets do it!

NO SPECIFIC REASON FOR THIS LINK...
I just really like the work levifunk is doing!

Lambics, Hops, and Length of Boil
Wild Brews recommends boiling lambic worts for 2-4 hours, but does not indicate how long the hops should be added to the boil.

Should the hops be added for the entire duration of the boil, to maximize extraction of their antioxidant and preservative properties? Or only a fraction of the boil?

I've used 4oz Debittered whole leaf hops from Hops Direct for the entire length of the boil. Are you doing a true turbid mash or the modified one in Wild Brews...yeast culture or spontaneous ferment?

Re: Lambics, Hops, and Length of Boil
I'm planning on using the Wyeast Lambic Mash Schedule (Wild Brews pg. 142), and using Wyeast's lambic blend. And the grist will be 60% pilsner malt, 40% flaked wheat.

The aged hops are Hallertauer from MoreBeer.

Like EW, I recommend adding all your hops for the full boil. Cheers, Dan
