I sure haven't. For all the reasons listed in previous posts. I think something like a 30 minute boil could be viable, as long as there's no pilsner malt. But I don't have enough interest in saving that time to give it a whirl.

Of course not. No one is trying to make you feel meek and inferior. You asked a question, and experienced brewers answered. More than once.

Driving without tires, that's cool right?

Anyhow, boiling the wort and hops causes all sorts of good chemical reactions that lead to good beer. Yeast will grow in whatever, so do your 1 minute boil and see what you get.

It would probably work, and you'd most certainly make beer however bad it would taste. The methods most of us use are brewing procedures handed down over hundreds of years, tried and true methods to make the best beer possible. Occasionally a new method will be developed, but honestly can't see this being one of them. I'd suggest trying it, it can at the very least be a learning experience.

I have considered something along those lines, when making 1 gallon batches, but had to reconsider due to the hops utilization. I was thinking of it mainly because of the boil loss. I had thought maybe I could cut down my boil time as it was a small batch and could except for the chemistry (hops, dme etc) involved. My first attempt at a one gallon batch ended badly as I didn't realize that once it starts boiling, it doesn't matter if you are boiling 1 gallon or 10, the boil-off rate is the same.
Try a 30 minute boil and see how it works, maybe it will be drinkable, maybe not, but if it ain't very good think how bad it might be if cut back by 59 minutes. Heck, I did a 60 minute boil on what should have been 90 minutes and didn't like the results, there are timetables for a reason, far more complicated than I can explain, I just take them as gospel now and try to make better beer.

Were you expecting to be told that you're a genius, and why didn't anyone think of this before?

+1 to this. And nobody played off the "You don't want a melted or burned sack." Post?

Personally, I don't want either. I'd say its your brew, do what you want. But personally, if I wanted to save time, I'd reduce to a 30 min. Boil vs. a 1 min. Boil first to see how it turned out.

You could make a Berliner Weiss, in which you don't actually have to boil the wort at all in some cases and hops aren't really an issue. If you are interested in what the effects of a minimal boil would be, that would be one way to find out.
