Ok everyone...old dude here trying to post his first question on The Forum, so please t-y-p-e s-l-o-w-l-y on replies! HA!
My municipality uses regular chlorine, not chloramines, and my standard procedure has been to bring all of my brewing and sparge water to a boil to drive off the chlorine, then cool to the needed temperature.
My Question: can I drive off the chlorine at a lower temp, say 180F rather than the 201F temp of boiling water here at 6700 ft. in Rock Springs, WY? Obviously, it would save time and propane if I don't have to bring the water to boil, then wait to cool.
Thanks in advance for your help!
