So this might be a very stupid question so I apologize but do the FWH hops come out once you start your boil? Or do they stay in the entire boil? Im just thinking they would contribute to more bitterness if they are left in or is that thinking not correct?

Funnel: http://www.amazon.com/Norpro-2-Inch-...7280938&sr=8-2
Brewed up an AK47 Pale Mild last Friday night, funneled it into the Jerrican as soon as I finished the boil, and let it cool overnight. Pitched the next morning at 80F before I went out of town for 2 days, came back and it was bubbling away! Can't wait to see how this turns out.

They are kept in during the entire boil. However, I don't think FWH are used very much in No Chill brewing. I see a lot of flame out additions though.

I use them all the time. They are another way to get flavor and bittering into a brew. Try it, you'll like it. Just be sure you're calculating the IBUs right. Sometimes I forgo the bittering addition and just add that all as FWH.

I do this a lot. I don't really adjust the quantity much for the FWH addition, but I often add some of the same hops at flameout (in a no-chill brew) to bring back some of the hop flavor. I think having the flavor increases the perception of bitterness, although that's a totally unsubstantiated opinion based purely on my own palate.

Just brewed my first No Chill batch. A simcoe IPA. Everything went really smooth, I cant believe how much time it cuts off. My only concern now is the container I put the beer in is bulging at the sides. Ill trust you guys that it wont blow up, I bought the Winpak plastic cylinder. Ill let you know how it turns out

The Winpak is one tough puppy. It will be fine, just don't shake it or anything. Just move it around enough for the hot wort to touch all the surfaces.

IP you have a kegging setup as I recall? Just use a corny keg and give it a blast of co2 while it chills. I do no chill brewing in my sanke kegs all the time and I dont even bother with a co2 blast. Haven't had a problem yet (10-15 batches of 10 gallons) and it takes 2 days for my beer to chill (*knocks on wood*).

Just cap teh corny and give a blast of co2 to get teh air out and then leave the pressure release valve open so taht as the beer chills it doesnt put a negative pressure on the keg. Then you can either transfer to a carboy or just ferment in the corny if you have the equipment. Spend the money on an extra keg instead of a plastic jug.
