Just finished making a wort chiller with 50' of 3/8" copper refrigeration tubing. I plan to get a bucket of soapy water and a brush to clean it up. Then will boil some water and leave it in for a while. Anything else I need to do to make it food safe before using it to cool a batch of wort?
Also, I used some 14ga THHN solid wire to tie a few of the coils together to help it keep it's shape. Any problem with this copper wire in the work??
