I know where you are. I caught the train to the city there a few times. I miss that area. A lot of my family still lives around there.

I was curious about cleaning the wort chiller also, glad I found this thread. Soaking the wort chiller in a star stan solution for just a few minutes cleaned that copper right up! Nice too because I don't have to scrub anything.

Do I have to soak before every use? I'm using for first time, so soaking in vinegar to get it ready. But do I need to soak again after this?

I just don't want the initial tarnish in my beer.
