Own a shop vac?
Tape it to the suction side, and turn it on 'til it's dry.

Nice idea! I might start doing this with my ordinary hoses.

Some of you folks have WAY too much time on your hands to worry about a dry hose

Like i said in my post above, just put the hose in the freezer and dont worry about drying it. I do this with my beer gun after i run sanitizer through the line. It mitigates the risk of mold or bacteria growing in the tube. just run hot water and sanitizer through it before using again.

To quote Monty Python "Who are you who are so wise in the ways of science?"
and to quote Guinness "BRILLIANT!!"
The extremely low humidity will dry them out fast and thoroughly by diffusion. Great tip.

Seems like a pita to me
Because "chilled" is relative. Summers here can get 110 plus, during those days I'm lucky to get my wort below 100.

I understand plastics can be a personal issue, but I wouldn't put >80 wort through vinyl/pvc. I have been working toward eliminating all plastics from the "hot" (to me >80) side of brewing. Last piece is that nylon paint strainer bag on the hop spider.

I appreciate all the ideas from everyone on my dilemma. Here is what I found that works for me:

Start a 5 gallon boil in BK, hook up lines through pump, plate chiller, out through 50' silicone hose to weedy section of yard where I boil the crap out of them. After 5 gallons of boiling water I feel it's clean enough for me.

I have lots of weeds.

To drain the hose wind it around one of your kettles, and let it drain.
