You shouldn't get much hot break with extract anyway- it's already been processed by the manufacturer. Don't worry about it.
I am a believer in adding the extract at flame out, so I wouldn't boil it at all. Many add it at 15 minutes, but I found that it stops the boil. So, I started adding it at flame out and it's still plenty hot enough to pasteurize the extract. Not having a hot break isn't an issue at all.
