Just finished my HLT tank with HERMS coil. Just gotta add heating element then it's on to building the mash/lauter tun. ready to have all this done so I can see what all this electric brewing is all about.
What length herms coil did u end up going w. still tossing around legbth. Some say 25' is plenty when others say 50'.
I went with 50' just to be sure. That stuff is alot harder to bend than people say. Thought I was never gonna get it small enough.
Here's what I used to bend the coil. Started trying to do it by hand and foot and it started kinking on me so I quit and found this little miracle worker.
What is that tool called?
My Lazy Azz just went and bought one done $115.00, just need to bend to the fittings for installhttp://www.midwestsupplies.com/stainless-steel-immersion-wort-chiller-w-garden-hose-fittings-50-ft.html
