That's another thing that keeps me too much near the kettle. I have this possibly wrong idea that I have to stir the wort during boiling to reduce the risk of scorching. I suppose this makes no sense, because I have theoretically no solids in the wort, and the convective motion should move the wort all around.Not a lot of time spent hovering over the kit, especially if only half batch being done as the auto program is well dialled in so no chance of a boil over.
There is some "dust" coming out from the hop basket, but I have the impression that it will all swim at the surface and tint of green the froth.
From what you say, I should realize that stirring the wort is not necessary at all, and that during the tedious boil I can do whatever else without paying attention to the kettle, once the first 10-15 minutes have elapsed without overflow.
