HSA discussion and "RDWHAHB" don't belong in the same post LOL............
When doing all grain batches I collected wort in a 5 gallon bucket and then dumped it into my brew pot. Did this for about year (20+ batches). I never noticed any oxidation or other negative effects.
I stopped the bucket dumping method once I reconfigured my setup. Not because there was anything wrong with it just bc it was an unnecessary step.
So no, I don't subscribe to the whole HSA theory for homebrewers.
