Prevent burns from Wort Chillers!
Connect your "In" and "Out" hoses to your Wort Chiller BEFORE adding the Wort Chiller to your boiling wort. If you place a previously used Wort Chiller into a boiling kettle the water trapped in the copper from the last use will turn to steam and possibly spit out of the chiller. It is also very difficult and dangerous to connect hoses to an already hot wort chiller.
Using Star San to condition your stainless and copper
Stainless steel discolored? Copper looking used, and starting to lose its shine? Take a little raw Star San (not mixed with any water) and apply it to the copper or stainless with a scrub pad (CE27) or a rag, and let it sit for 15 minutes. Rinse it off, and re-apply if necessary (although it usually isn't!) This will help keep your stainless conditioned, and will make your copper look brand new again.
