WOW!!! This is my second boil as well. I had exact same issue. I logged on to see if others were experiencing the same. I spent the last 30 mins manually regulating gas valve to prevent boil over and then I found this trick. My patio fan works like a charm. I just cranked up the gas and opened another Sierra Nevada for thE second half of the boil. Thanks HBT!!!
