I have used the "pappers stove-top pasteurization" technique successfully, but I have a batch
carbonating right now and was wondering if anybody knows of another option to kill off the
yeast after the...

To the wort just before the boil starts which makes it overflow all over the stove. Boil goes
fine and I add the OTHER HALF OF THE DME BOWL at the end of the boil. The wort is almost coed
