Immersion Chiller Question
Okay, so i built an immersion chiller the other day which I think turned out really well. I wrapped it around a mini keg that you can buy in the beer section and then wrapped the remaining tubing to form a large base / plate, figuring most of the heat is on the bottom of the kettle where the heat is applied.
Anyways, I brew in the kitchen so I was going hook it up to my faucet, but I am having problems connecting it. When I take off the aerator, I have the threads, but when I went to Menards and purchased a supply line, the threads do not fit. After combing the plumbing area, the threads are standard pipe threads, but my faucet's are much finer. Has anyone experienced this? Any ideas? I ended up purchasing a valve, splitter and supply line so I COULD tap in under the sink, but I really don't want to do this. I can't be the only one with this problem, I checked other faucets and a lot of the Moen's are the same thread pattern. Thanks.
