[QUOTE=gabeweisz; You can always just tilt the kettle after the liquid gets below the level of the spigot - just be careful not to rouse up anything that has settled out. [/QUOTE]
Yes gabeweisz, I can always tip the boiler, but as I use carboys I am always concerned about slipping. Especially as I brew outdoors in the Wisconsin winter.

If I do this, will I be able to suck more wort out of my boiler even from below the spigot line? I am attempting to decrease my boilers deadspace. I hope this will contribute to an increase in my efficiencies.
