Default Question about racking to glass carboy after full boil

Hey Guys,

I just bought a 10G kettle so I can do full boils on 5g batches, and I have a question regarding putting the wort in my glass carboy. Before I would pour 3g of cold water into the carboy, and dump my semi chilled wort into the mix so I wouldn't crack the carboy. Now that I'll be doing full boils will I be safe dumping the full batch into the carboy so long as the wort is chilled to around 75 degrees, and the glass is roughly the same temp? I'm guessing it'll be perfectly fine, but I thought I would ask just in case, because hey, I'm still a noob!

It'll be fine, but I'd recommend siphoning from the kettle to the carboy. That 10g kettle will be too heavy with 5g of wort for pouring.

Yep, as long as you are chilling the wort prior to adding to the carboy you are all good.

Just make sure you aren't hitting the carboy with anything that is much hotter than the glass itself. Personally, I wont put anything in the carboy that is hotter than luke-warm, unless there is already enough liquid inside to even it out.

As long as the temp are similar you are good. As an added bonus, I would add a funnel or just keep the hose near the top of the carboy and let the wort splash in therefore airating the wort before pitching the yeast.
