Default built a flo through

chiller 40 feet of copper coil.... out of the pot at +200 and into the bucket at 68, just open the valve. Gravity is my friend.

I've often wondered if an immersion cooler could effectively be used to run hot wort through a cold bath instead of vice-versa. Thanks.

On a side note, what about running it through an equal length of plastic hose as opposed to copper coil?

If you flip that duct register over so the fins face up you won't see the pipe behind it... Room looks really nice otherwise, good stuff!

Has anyone mentioned you shouldn't be doing this with wood in you're basement? J/K!

Looks good, thinking about using angle iron to make myself a stand.

The plastic doesn't conduct heat like metal does, so the ice won't transfer through to the inside of the hose where the beer is. Plastic is more of an insulator than a conductor.

Yup lots of people have mentioned that there is a lot of wood around those burners, the wood does not even get warm. That angled steel is just like a big boys erector set. Was fun to build.

Yeah I know, just making a joke because it seems to be the #1 thing people are commenting on. Where did you get the angled steel from?

Lowe's is 1 1/4" 12 gauge

Edit --- the steel was $14.28 per 48" piece I used 1 1/2" 14 gauge flat for the burner mounts..

I did get a nice smile from the wood joke ... I like to work with wood, built most of that room from left over pieces from remodeling I have down to the house, so I have spent very little on the room itself... just wise use of scraps...

Here's a link to your local Lowes:
