Was just recently thinking of doing a Fuggles smash with most of the IBUs coming from like a 3-4 ounce 20 minute addition, just to be stupid. I was going to call it "The Fug Bomb", or alternatively "Fuggizil My Nizzles".

Chris, used your boiling water technique just now to flush out my Therminator. Seemed to work like a charm! I think I'm gonna like this thing.
