That's exactly what's happening on my kitchen right now. I was wondering if anyone else had any different techniques.
The reason for doing this on the brew in question is that I apparently mis measured my water in sparging and was severely under on my OG. I didn't catch it until I transferred to my carboy after the boil and realized I had about a gallon and a half more than I should have. I must have seriously spaced out during the sparge! I figured this might help with the flavor a bit by removing some water. It was an experimental brew anyway, so why not experiment with some different techniques too?
