And making yogurt is not the same thing as brewing beer.

Looks like a one minute boil might be alright for a lager style beer. Or even 5 minutes to get a little more hop bitterness. According to beer calculus each minute between 1 and 5 shows an exponential difference in ibus. Near ice age lagering should help put out some proteins over a few months

Sounds like you've got it all figured out. I'm no expert, but I don't think it'll boil off the DMS precursors (for a lager you'd want a 90 minute boil or longer for pilsner malt), or give you proper hops utilization, but you should definitely try it since you've got it all figured out. Saving 55 minutes of time would be a huge benefit, even if it's a DMS loaded mess.

Then what is the point? Saving propane? I don't understand.

Well, if you've a mind to to it, then you'll do it.

You've been told by experienced brewers that you'll need to worry about DMS precursors.

Hops utilization and flavor is a huge issue. Hops will have a ton of flavor at 5 minutes, and they don't at 60 minutes, so that will totally change the picture of the hops bittering, flavor, and aroma.

But if that stuff doesn't concern you, and you're totally comfortable with doing it, then who are we to stop you?

I'd hazard a guess to say probably not.

Most of us care about hot break, DMS precursors, and hops flavor in the finished beer.

So, no, I'd say any of us probably wouldn't even consider it. I'm done here.
