Maybe use that once I build a counter flow or buy a plate chiller
I have one of those. I use it to suck out the crap that grows in my AC condensation line. Works great (for that).
It would probably work with beer. I doubt the plastics would work at boiling temps though. I'd recommend saving your pennies and getting a march or chugger pump.
