    Help with hefe

    Gonna brew a Bavarian hefe and I'm not sure how to do it the directions say a multi infusion or single infusion doesn't matter but the multi I guess you keep adding water for the different stages.

    copper tubing for chiller

    I just bought regular copper tubing same size as yours but 20 feet instead and it works great. As for cleaning I just spray it of with hot water and scrub it down with a water mixer of star San. I haven't had any off favors.
