I have everything I need to assemble my mash tun. What seemed like such a simple project according to the online tutorials, has tested my meagre DIY skills to the limit! Mainly because of the fact I couldn;t get the exact pieces I wanted.
I have the ball valve and connections that I think, I'm pretty sure, will work. Some of fittings are brass, but the last thing I bought today is chrome plated, I think, maybe chrome or nickel, but definately not brass. All these plumbing fittings are designed to be on contact with drinking water I think, so I'm pretty sure they should be ok in the MLT.
Just to be sure though, can you guys let me know if nickel or chrome platings that are gonna come into contact with the wort, albeit pre-boil, are gonna be a problem?
