I do this. Works fine. I even (stupidly) dropped the carboy once and it still didn't break. Just siphon into the carboy after the boil, and plug up the top. I use a #7 stopper and a marker that fits in the hole.
The next day there will be a vacuum, i've had wort shoot out. So be easy removing the plug....
