Blingman Instructions
 
In general, I find Blichmann equipment to be pricey, but of good quality. What always amazes me though is the poor quality of the instructions that come with the equipment; full of spelling mistakes and even incorrect information. I just recently purchased the therminator and the operation instructions suggest that you whirlpool and then put the cover back on the kettle and let it sit for 15 minutes!:eek::eek: Is he not aware of DMS?
I couldn't believe it when I read it.

LOL, Ironically I am a phonetic speller as well, but I'm not selling equipment worldwide and writing the instructions!

I do whirlpool for about 10 minutes and let it sit for 20 minutes before using the therminator without problems (This is too eliminate as much trub/hops as possible going into the fermenter). I see people doing this even without the therminator.

Sitting for 15 minutes OK if you have to, but not sitting covered.

I don't see why not. It's not boiling....

Give it a try ;)

Depends how long the boil is and the grist composition, and also how vigorous the fermentation is. I think you are still driving off SMM after flameout, but not as high of a rate. I would think if you pitch proper rates of healthy yeast, it shouldn't matter most of the time.

have you had alot of beers with DMS issues? I do this all the time and have never had issues

There is nothing wrong with putting the lid on after whirlpooling. Would you rather it sit uncovered to let all manner of nasties float in?

I don't whirlpool but use a cfc. As soon as the boil is done the lid goes on, never a problem. If the dms hasn't been driven off during the boil, something is wrong.

It seems to me that you don't know how DMS is dissipated. If you form detectable levels of DMS after the boil, you didn't boil for long enough.
