I think that temperature drop is the best reason to add it at flame out, not at 10 or 15 minutes as some suggest. Don't stop a good boil.

Besides, why not put that temperature drop to some good use - like helping to cool the wort after the boil - rather than having it be a "problem"?

On the same token, I let my wort chiller sit in the starsan solution and put it in the boiling wort 10 minutes till end to make certain it's not going to be adding any nasties to the beer. This makes adding wort at the end a bit trickier. Maybe not necesary since i'm already sanitizing it with starsan?

Good point, as long as there is enough heat to kill anything that may get in, right?
