I've been perusing the site reading up on different techniques and I keep coming across the term "at flame out". I've searched and searched but can't seem to find out what part of the process of brewing this term refers too. Someone please school me. Thanks.

It refers to an addition, usually hops, as you kill the flame on your boil and remove the kettle from the heat source.

When you turn your stove or the flame on your propane burner off.

It is when you are done boiling and turn off the flame.

I never take the kettle off the heat source, just turn it off.

I do, right after any flame out adds. Is there a reason not too?

Thanks guys. That's what I thought, but thought it could also be a reference to something to do with chilling or the point when the yeast stops fermenting. Also, Revvy, I have to thank you for your blog on bottling. I bottled my first batch on saturday in about 45 mins. I do have a question about how you sanitize your bottles, though. I believe you posted you use something called a vinerator. I've searched for it but can't seem to find one. Do you have a link to where I can get one?

Midwest supply carries the vinerator. They're a great tool for bottling.

Thanks Nord. Found it. They didn't have it listed as "vinerator" and it wasn't under the bottling accessories. Actually had to go through the catalog to find it.

Weird. Their sites kinda goofy. I always shop in store, never ordered from them.
