Afternoon all.

I've read about no-chill onto a cube but could I just drop the wort into a FV and let it cool?

My worry is that it would suck in contamination as it cooled, is there way around this?

Has anybody tried it?

You can use the cube as the FV. It's made of the same material.

Make use of what you have...

I used to 'No Chill' in a fermenter with the lid on and the airlock full of vodka... yeah, it draws back but it is at temp the next day, ready for pitching yeast..

I probably did about 10 brews that way and never had a problem...

Not a proven method but yeah, people chill in the kettle and report they have no infections! Fux me how but and hey.....

2c.

I have done this a few times without infection. Force a piece of starsan soaked tissue in the air lock/grommet hole so no insects can get in. Make sure you are super sanitary and pitch your yeast the next day as soon as possible.

Or buy some more cubes :)
