temps unless you are willing to wait a long time to condition.Yes, that's what I would do.

After I make my sanitizer and use it during the brew day, I put a lid on it and keep it around

disconnecting from ...

cooler. I place the bag in the colander and let gravity do its thing for a few minutes. Then I
use a cast...
