Hey guys. As stated I am new to the forums and to brewing with better equipment. I was lucky enough to know someone who was given beer and wine home brew kits. I plan on cleaning the crap out of everything and sanitizing it all real good. The wort chiller that came with this is in decent looking condition. The thing is it looks as if it has been sitting around for a while and is starting to tarnish. I am very hesitant to stick it into my wort in this condition. I would feel much better if it was still the nice shiny copper color. Does anyone see it as being bad to use it as it is even after sanitizing the crap out of it or is there some sort of cleaner I could/should use on this? I can include pictures later if needed. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks for all the great info guys. This really was a concern for me this weekend. I can't complain much as this stuff was free to me, but I am not going to lose an entire batch of brew over this chiller if I cant clean it good.
