Yes, you can transfer right after flame-out-or- you can whirlpool, then pour into the cube.

Those of you that pour into the cube, do you take your hops out of the wort first?

are you using hop bags (if so, I don't see how they would fit into the cube opening)?

Sometimes I cube hop, sometimes I dont... you can leave the hops in the wort in the fermentor if you want. It is better if you use pellets if you are letting the hops into the fermentor since they settle out nicely.

I allways leave my hops in the primary. Are you saying you don't do that?

Meh, not really. I have in the past, but not anymore. No real difference.

Whatever I use in the boil, I pour into my primary. It will stay there until I rack into a secondary or bottle bucket.

I keep reading about people draining their hot wort into their primary. Is there any reason why I can't use a large funnel and just dump the hot wort into a winpak thing?

Is getting oxegen into the hot wort bad?

How do I add oxegen when I'm ready to pitch my yeast, if I ferment in my winpak thinger?


thanks.

My Winpak IS my fermentor and cooling vessel. To aerate, you just shke it when it is cool, like you would anything else.

NO! YOU CAN'T do THAT!!!!!!!! Hot side Aeration!!!!!!!!!! BAD!

Except I did just that on the no chills I have done and both have turned out really well. The wheat I am drinking now was half no chilled and half old school, and the hops do stand out, but no other apparent taste problems.

And I scooped hot wort out of my boil kettle with a pitcher and poured it into a funnel with a hose on the end into my cube. The hose was like a blow off tube, and I cut it to go to the bottom of the cube, just to minimize agitation. But it got aerated even being gently poured into the funnel.

I am planning on installing a ball valve in my boil kettle soon.
