Default BrewHardware Sight Gauges

I broke in the new All grain system today and while heating strike water and bringing my wort to boil, there was constant bubbles rising to the top of the gauges to escape. I had to wrap the top of my BK guage with a paper towel to eliminate the sticky mess. Any ideas why it is doing this or if there is something I can do to alleviate the issue/rising bubbles in the sight gauge?

You need a heat shield.

Or, aluminum foil works.
