Scored 25' 1/4" copper, cleaning?
 
I was in the right place at the right time and scored some free Copper tubing. It has a little bit of latex paint from where someone painted around it. Anyone got any methods of cleaning or a chemical to remove this? Then how would I prep it for my wort immersion?

they have paint remover at the hardware store. I'm not sure I would use it on a planned immersion chiller though. I would just scrape the paint off with a putty knife or sharp pocket knife or something and then clean the copper with a vinegar/water solution before use. Just boil up enough water/vinegar to immerse your chiller and it will clean it up nicely.
