I got the towel idea from the instructions I read on a wort chiller at the local home brew shop. The towel was fresh out of the dryer and soaked in sanitizing solution for 30 min prior to use. So I think any bugs would have been deceased. It seamed better than leaving it wide open.

I think you must have picker up the smaller pump. Did you use the numbers from the PDF I posted? The one I have fits a 3/4" I.D. garden hose perfectly.

Do you use an immersion chiller? This could be a great solution because our sink faucets are too fancy to hook up a garden hose!

I've been considering the same thing for sometime. Except using a bilge pump. They can be had for a similar price but at twice the GPH. All you need is a small 12 volt battery or even a battery charger hooked up to it. You could do a lot of batches before the battery would need charged.

Yes this in an immersion chiller. Copper coil to be exact.

Reason: mispelling

Nice setup. I was discussing options with my LHBS because my tap water has been running super warm lately and he was telling me to do this. Pics help a lot.

Thanks!

Probably not good for your wort.
Psych, both WORTS on fingers and WORT (unfermented beer) are spelled the same way. Check your engrish before correcting someone else.

This is a great idea Tom. I do believe i'll be sourcing a submersible pump in the very near future. My water bill was outrageous this month!

According to the specs, the outlet is only .5 inches. You could use THIS though and make it work with a piece of 1/2 inch hose!
