Sounds like those that describe HSA as a bogeyman are spot on, I'm going to worry less about stirring from now on. And it sure does help the immersion chiller cool beter when the wort is moving.

I'd like to point out, that avoiding HSA doesn't hurt the beer either.
And the theories change so often.... I won't be suprised when in a few months we will hear that HSA is dangerous..

I've always like this quote on Maltybrew.com

Quote:
Hot-side aeration…myth?
I listened to a great podcast from Basic Brewing Radio yesterday on hot-side aeration. Everyone seems to debate whether or not this is a concern for homebrewing. The podcast covers an experiment done by some homebrewers in Austin where they try hard to cause HSA in a small batch.

I was never too concerned about HSA in my brewing and now I think I’m even less concerned.
The way I figure it is, I have enough worries in my life already, I worry about dying old and alone, I worry about the price of gas or food, I worry about the coming zombiepocalypse, I sometimes even worry about never getting laid again...I sure as heck am not going to worry about something within my hobby for chrissakes, especially since there has been so much evidence to convince me it's a non issue for the homebrewer.

See, now this is something I look forward to. My incessant consumption of cinema has well prepared me. And look at it this way, even more reason to brew more and enjoy it more! Plus, you're in Michigan, so you have to be relatively close to the Lake. According to most movies (though not all!) zombies don't do so well with the water. So you're all good.

I brewed my first AG batch last week and due to some issues regarding my technique and equipment I came to realize that HSA might be a big problem... Once I started what I was doing I didnt have much of a choice, and I decided it wasnt worth worrying about... and now I read this thread and it makes me happy...

I found the video I mentioned earlier...It's OBVIOUSLY not a lot of concern to some commercial breweries either;

I've done some really stupid HSA in the past. I can honestly say I never noticed any bad effect from it. I don't even worry about it any more.

I do that, too. Actually, since it's post-fermentation, it's not "wort" anymore. Actually, come to think of it, it's post-consumption as well.
