I think this is the answer. I have the same condition but never worry much about it. I usually get as much water out of the chiller as possible to reduce the time it takes to come back full boil. Now I will just heat/sanitize it before I drop it in the wort. Glad this question came up. cheerstevo

I had no idea people lut their immuraion chillers during the boild. If it kills the boild putting it in, why not throw it in at flame out? Its lowering the temp of the wort just by puttin it in, so thats constructive at flame out, not so much during the boil.


Because technically, you should boil something for ~15 minutes to sanitize it. Better safe than sorry, I always say.

I do like the Star San idea, but itís just that much more work.

OP - donít sweat it. That 5 mins. wonít hurt anything. RDWHAHB.


Ya, i see the point for sanitizing. I just soaked the chiller in sanitized water. Oh well, to each their own.

No issues, just add a couple of minutes to the end of your boil if you are concerned the couple of minutes without boil is making a difference in your beer. Consistent is more important than "right".
