I didn't know that about the late LME addition. Everything I've read is that boiling it longer will carmelize it more, which is partly why I did it that way. But... with 140 grams of hops going in the brew, with another 80 in dry hop, I'm hoping for a balanced beer.
I'll certainly let you know how it tastes. Bottle in two weeks time, I'll try the first one somewhere around Xmas day. That will be the I cannot wait any longer, I think its carbed tasting...
