Who thinks of these things?!?!  Sounds awesome - I'm compelled to give it a try!  :o
I'm done brewing for a while. :(  The "sight glass" on my Polar Ware 15 gal. brew kettle took a dump for the 4th time and Polar Ware can't come up with a fix and their response to this issue ignored the fact that their plastic sight gauge repeatedly fails under normal operating conditions!! >:(

My experience from various brew pubs is that it is drawn from the mash as it is being transferred to the boil kettle.  The Scotch takes care of any sanitize issues.  But in the end it is all the celebration of beer making.  Cheers.
