I am getting ready to build a CFC much like Bobby-M's and I am going to build it directly into my system. I am wondering what you all do to clean and sanitize your CFC before you use it?
Cheers
JJ

I used a compression fitting to attach it to my kettle's valve. I just pump Starsan through it before I hook it up.

I pump boiling wort through it (coolant off) and back into the kettle for the last 5 minutes of the boil.

I clean after use by rinsing, soaking in oxiclean solution, and then rinsing again.
I sanitize by using it to transfer iodophor from a bottling bucket to the primary.

I think this is the most viable option. But arn't you worried about hot side arreation?

I don't get any aeration of the wort by pumping through the CFC, but I could imagine if you don't get your output submerged into the kettle wort, it might foam up.
