Default Full Boil without Kettle Spigot

Once the boil is complete/wort cooled... Do you just dump that sucker into the primary? Any useful techniques?

That's what I've done. It might be a little awkward to handle so you might need a 2nd set of hands. I always just get my g/f to help me. I just pour it straight into the primary through a large funnel that I bought from NB.

Yep, man up and pick it up and pour it into primary. I pour mine through a strainer to aerate/get the hops and sediment out.

You can siphon it out too.

Easier said than done! I am too much of a wimp to do that, so I siphon the first 1/2 or so with my sanitized autosiphon, and then lift and pour the rest through a colander over the primary.

(I guess I gotta lift more weights!)

No problem in just dumping it right in.

I don't know if it's overkill, but I usually use a 5 gallon paint filter either over the top of the bucket or over the funnel into the carboy. I like the finer mesh compared to a colander.

With my 40qt:

Drop immersion chiller in last 15 minutes to sanitize.

Lift pot off stove and onto steel typewriter table placed right next to stove - don't walk with hot wort.

Roll into range of sink, connect chiller to sink, run chiller.

Stir in an effort to whirlpool crud to center, and aid chilling.

When down to temp, pull chiller out and stir around the outside, aiming for the big pile of crud in the center of the pot. Put top on pot, wait a few minutes.

Put sanitized pot scrubber on end of racking cane, fill sanitized siphon with boiled and cooled water, plunk in pot (near side, away from pile of crud in middle), let go, pinch off when wort reaches end of hose, move hose to fermenter, let go. When wort level is low, tip pot up to get more wort out, even though it also means fighting the crud. Somewhere in here remember to grab a hydrometer sample.

Cap and shake fermenter, pitch yeast, install airlock.

Dumping 40-50 lbs of wort is not my idea of a good time, especially since minor errors in aim are very expensive and annoying when dumping - much less so with siphoning (or pumping, if you have the technology).

I vote overkill. I have never filtered after boiling, that some good stuff in there...

I just use sanitized 1" ID food grade tubing to siphon from the kettle to the carboy. The splashing as the wort goes into the carboy helps to aerate, too.

I had a couple close calls when pouring, and going through all the work of brewing only to drop the kettle and spill the wort all over is not something I'd like to experience.
