I have a 1.5 x 12 brewers hardware rims tube that has never been used. I have run water through for a test but never wort. It has a 120v heating element. Selling because I am moving and got to get rid of the "excess" stuff
$100 + shioouing and it its yours
absolutely makes a difference. My wife used to laugh at me so I ran a test on her.
I poured two Sam Adams meleonhead in two different glasses. One pilsner and the other a stout type.
I asked her if should could pick out which beer I made. she definitely prefered one over the other.
Bobby has a youtube video on how to stretch the tubing on these. Trust me sounds dumb but after wacthing it I can put one on in about 15 seconds versus the old way of 5 minutes and several objects being thrown across the room.
