Adding at the end of the boil??

Recommended Posts

I hear this phrase in regards to the addition of extra ingredients when brewing. Just a question...when is the "end of the boil"? is it the point of adding hops or some other time? Sorry if it is a silly question!

Not a silly question. The term generally relates to all grain brewing and as I understand it the end of the boil is when the grains etc tend to clump together and drop to the bottom? Adding hops at the beginning of the boil will promote bitterness whilst at the end promotes flavour and aroma.
