Just cause I dont want to be lifting the thing in and out . Figure it would make a nice clean installation as well. I've never done an AG so I dont know how much of a mess the hot break really makes but with extract a little oxyclean and a light pressure wash from the hose always seemed to work.the_bird said:Yeah, it'll make cleaning the chiller and the keggle a total PITA, I would think.

Of all the various parts of the brewing process, I REALLY don't think this one is enough of a hassle to warrant "fixing". It takes all of 2 seconds to drop the IC into the kettle, and about the same to lift it back out.Virtuous said:Just cause I dont want to be lifting the thing in and out .
I am using a march pump to whirlpool so that really isnt an issue.SuperiorBrew said:Plus you wouldnt be able to move it around so it would take longer to cool your wort.
You're right. I'll possibly save it for another day after a few brews to see if it still makes sense.Funkenjager said:I'm all for DIY projects, but I think you should seriously consider focusing your efforts on problems that are actually significant - this one just sounds like a solution waiting for a problem (no offense).
