Default I made a small booboo

Once my Hefe reached 72 degrees, I put my motor boat in the keggle and boy oh boy did I aerate it! So much so that a good portion was foam and stayed in the keggle.

In the future I will wait until my wort is in the fermentor before I pull that stunt again.

I lost about 5-9 gravity on that stunt. Feel free to heckle now

Consider thyself heckled.

Why the point drop? Because of the aeration effect?

I lost fermentables in the keggle, I wasn't waiting for it to "un-aerate" un-foam, you get the idea. I filled to 5 gal and called it a day.
