Now I know that PVC is not good for the hot situations like when you are doing the mash but do you guys know if it's good for inside the fermenter
Just a thought, what if you tried something like "Fluidmaster Universal 20"L Stainless Steel Faucet Supply Line" listed at Lowes for about $7? These use to be more common before braided SS flexible supplies became more popular.

Crimp one end and attach the other via a compression fitting.
