Wort Chiller ingredient
« on: November 15, 2013, 06:37:59 AM »
Don't know how many others already thought of this, but it was an "Ah-ha!" moment for me.   I created a new "Misc" ingredient for my wort chiller so I don't forget to put it in the kettle for the last 5 mins to sanitize it.  Now I just add it to my recipe like I do the Irish Moss.

Yep, and "Sanitize Spoon" so the long spoon is clean and I remember to put it in the boil at 5 minutes so it's boiled before cutting off gas.   After chilling, I pull the chiller out and leave spoon there to do a quick whirlpool before letting it settle.

Same for me here: flushing my plate chiller with 2-3L boiling wort to sterilize it (and put the wort back in the boil for the last couple of minutes).
