Yes you can just keep boiling or you may have to add water at the end which can help cool it. Good luck

Did a mock brew with water today. Started with ~27 liters of water. Got from mash temp to boil in about 15 minutes so I was impressed. 60 minute boil I ended up around 23.5 liters of water. I'll be trying my first AG brew tomorrow, I've never done an extract so it's a big leap! I'll mash with about 17-18 liters of water, top up to 28 and do my 60 minute boil. If I have to boil an extra 10-15 minutes that's fine. Wish me luck folks!

Everything went smooth. No boil-overs, ended up right at 23 liters! The grain bag ripped about an inch lifting it out, so I have about 1/4 cup of grain in the wort but I don't think it should be a big deal? Put the pot in my laundry sink and got it down to pitching temps in about 20 minutes. Pitched the yeast and it's in the closet. Hope it turns out good I'm excited to get this one done!

It was an ingredient kit I bought from canadianhomebrewsupply.com. It's an Irish red ale. Not sure the ingredients but it got great reviews so that's what I wanted. It had a 60 minute hop and 30 minute hop, 10lbs of grain, that's most I can tell you guys.

I'm making myself a keggle out of a 15.5 gal keg. It will have both a spigot and a Bilchman thermometer. I am planning on putting the spigot as low as possible with a short siphon tube situated off-center so I can whirlpool. The thermometer I would like to have at about the 3 gallon height for accuracy, to avoid overheating and for convenient reading.

I have several concerns:

First, my plan is to use the top cutout as a removable false bottom to avoid scorching my bag. I am thinking to put a slot in it to get it past the probe from the thermometer and the siphon tube. Any thoughts?

Second, I am wondering whether the probe from the thermometer is going to poke holes in, or otherwise interfere with, my bag. Any thoughts?

Finally, I would like to thoroughly clean the keg, inside and out. It has some old colored plastic labels wrapped in bands around it and old adhesive. Inside it is grungy on the bottom and the metal is pretty discolored. I don't want to trash the surface of the stainless steel. I have heard overnight soak in a strong oxyclean solution and a scrub with bar keepers friend will do it. Any advice on that topic?

EDIT: I should add that I am also concerned about how to get my wort chiller past the probe from the thermometer. Maybe not difficult. Have to play with that too. So much to consider.

Thanks in advance for your help.
