I have mine permanently installed inside my keggle.

Do you think it is bad for the wort to have the copper coils in the boiling kettle at all times? I figured since there are copper kettles why not just keep them in there.

I believe the copper acts as a yeast nutrient.

If your eyes start glowing then I'd change the design.
Have a beer on me.
