How do you guys sanitize the chiller? Been thinkning of makingone of these very soon. Trying to streamline my brewing practices.

I now use 1/2" id 5/8" od beer line for siphoning my 13 gallon carboys. Nice and fast. Plus it hooks up to my filter easier.

Any way back to the CPC. Any issues with beer stone etc clogging these things up over time?

I flush mine with water immediately after use (just use a barbed hose adapter) and then run some Star-San through. Before use I do the same thing...seems to work fine.

OK. BTW Cheyco, I was in Calgary a few day ago. Should have asked you where the HB stores are as I can only find diversol sani and dry yeast here. Should have picked up some liquid yeast and starsan or onestep.

Yes, you should have... I'm in Africa right now, but I would have told you to go to The Vineyard. It's the only place in town where you can get liquid yeast. The only good sanitizer they have is Iodophore, which I know you can get where you are (specifically the brew your own in Winfield has it.)

As far as the CFC goes, I also flush it after use and then store it with sanitizer in it, then flush it again with water before use. Once it's hooked up to the kettle, I also run a pint or so of hot wort through it untill it is too hot to touch (and discard that wort of course) then turn on the water and let'er buck, as they say.

Do you just pass the copper tubing through the newly drilled out compression fittings? What makes this water tight? Or is that here Solder/ JB weld comes into play? I've got all the pieces for this, probably make it up in time for my next batch.

Yup, the copper goes through the drilled compression fittings. They still work the same way as they did before, it's just that now instead of the copper butting up against the shoulder inside the fitting it goes right through. Perfectly watertight if you didn't damage the ferrule seat on the fitting.

Thanks for the quick respopnse, I'll get some pictures of mine up in a little bit. Everything went fine, and I learned how compression fittings worked in the process...

Hate to revive an old thread, but after looking at the wort wizard threads popping around, I'm going to build one of these. One problem though...Lowes and the Depot only sell 3/8" copper in 20' lengths for $30! However, I have an old...I mean about 15 years old..immersion chiller that is 3/8" and about 25' long.

Anything special I'd need to do to use it? I'm thinking blow it our with compressed air, then submerge and boil it, then run some star san or PBW through it and let it soak. Would this work ok, or should I opt for new copper?
