So I’ve begun the strange adventure of home brewing, under the tutelage of one Jeff Melvin and Michael Erskine.
Last Friday, a beautiful day for a homebrew and a DIY project, Jeff and I build a wort chiller.
Jeff procured 50 feet of copper tubing, which we wrapped around a 5-gallon bucket. We bent the 90-degree angles around a can of dog food to avoid kinking. We attached heavy-duty hoses to the copper with worm clamps.
Here are the results, and Jeff explains how it all works and why it is awesome.
