For a while there I was depressed about having to close down but that reference made it completely worth it. Just please don't shoot me in the ass with a BB gun.
Something else that might be worth considering is this stuff:http://www.hoseworld.com/acatalog/fo...lity_hose.html
BREWERS SUCTION & DELIVERY HOSE
RED COLOUR NR/SBR COVER
WHITE EPDM FDA KTW & BGVV APPROVED LINING - NON TASTING / NON TAINTING
SUITABLE FOR BEERS, WINES AND ALCHOHOLIC DRINKS
EPDM lining means high temperature. I have seen this hose in brewery builds but don't know where to buy it in the USA.
I suspect it is this stuff: "Alispir red food hose"http://www.grene.com/shop/action/ite...25x36%2C5mm%29
EPDM lined "hoses" like this typically run over $12-15 a foot.
That's out then.
I may have found a source for the dairy washdown hose. It is high temp, does not say food grade. At $1.05 (per foot?) it might be worth asking about. http://www.atlantarubber.com/store/index.php?prod=94418
Messing with anything other than silicone is a recipe for cancer. Just get hose from Bobby M and live a happy healthy life and take pride in knowing you are supporting a fellow enthusiast.
Your words, not his. Bobby is the greatest in my eyes.
I'll take my chances with the FDA approved, food grade certified, high temperature dairy hose.
