Well, as I've said, AG here I come. I've just finished roughing in my mash tun and am looking for opinions to make it better before it's maiden voyage.
Question #1 - The fit between the copper on some of the some joints are rather loose and I'd like to tighten them up a bit. I'm thinking of sweating them in and then desoldering them in hopes the residual solder will tighten them up. I guess another option would be to put a little dimple on them to hold them together better. My fear is that they'd seperate during mashing/stirring...I'd rather my first AG batch not have any problems like that...
Question #2 - I have not yet slotted the pipe. From all of your experiences, should the slit go 1/2 way through the pipe or not quite half way? I would think that 1/2 way would really weaken the pipe...maybe not though...
Any advice would be appreciated.
