I use 6.5 gal food grade buckets for primaries. I'm doing an experimental split batch so I can use the same mash to test the difference between cascade and amarillo hops.... anyway I'm mashing into a bucket and then splitting the wort between two boils. I only have the one pot, so at the end, I'd like to transfer it to the primary as soon as possible and let it chill in there so I can get the next set of wort boiling. I don't think putting boiling wort in the bucket is a great idea, but I was wondering if anybody had any idea what a good max temp would be to pour my hot wort in the bucket?
Then I can put it outside and let it cool, it's pretty chilly out there.
Thanks in advance.
