I scrub mine with some Star San before each use. Gets it looking shiny and new!

I stopped boiling my coil all together because of the effect on the finish. The coil soaks in an ice & starsan solution while the wort boils instead now. Results in a beautiful clean coil and really helps crash the temp just a little faster

How often should I should soak my wort chiller in vinegar or StarSan? I did initially before my first use but since it's submerged in my boil. So I usually just spray the chiller down and then put in boil. I don't want to over clean the wort chiller.

I keep a 5 gallon bucket of starsan on brew days. Usually while the boil is going on I let the chiller soak until Im ready to use it. After Im done I dunk it back in there basically just to give it a quick rinse. Then I repeat process next batch.
