I stand corrected.  I've done it several times when I'm trying to run hot wort through the chiller to sanitize it and mistakenly had the out tube inside the carboy.  But yeah, just because it didn't happen to me, doesn't mean it can't happen.

Says the man who blew up a barrel....

Woah!  How the hell'd he pull that one off?   :o

The problem with this is that the hops will clog the dip tube while the whirlpool is being established, right?

well, yes if this is the only variable he changes, but I was assuming he would handle this via HopBlocker and/or bags as bluesman suggested.

That's what you get for taking time off of brewing, if you'd been around you would have heard the story.  And seen the aftermath. ;D

It's probably something obvious, but I can't figure out what you're talking about. ;D

I normally get between 10 and 15% evaporation over an hour with my blichman but I am at sea lvl. Maybe it's a combo of a harder boil and altitude? I didn't see were you were at...
