Your connection sounds like the right way to go, but I am not so sure the filter, even with 0.2mm screen will remove any break material. That stuff is slimy and stringy and will probably cruise right...

Even though the majority of the hop crud...

Ha ha. :o
It is hard as crap to duct tape insulation on a rounded surface without a wrinkle or two. That must be the piece that I let my 5 year old put on. Yeah, that's it. It was someone else. ;)

Hahaha. I was thinking the same thing.

I would leave the lid off at least until the temp drops to around 150F or so. Unless you boiled for 90+ minutes, there is still some DMS being released. Minimal perhaps, but above 140F, anything...
