Yep. And another thing I'm struggling with has to do with the many, many pictures I've seen from German breweries with large copper tanks, yet it's now a no-no. Martin is pretty adamant that copper is needed to drive off sulfur, so the alternative is a sulfur bomb with great malt character? I know sulfur dissipates eventually, but still scratching my head there.
The good thing is that wort only needs minimal contact with metallic copper to achieve the desired result. I know that my system has more copper piping than I would prefer. For the past 6 months, I've been wondering if it is too much. This paper added to my doubts.
Thanks, Martin. I think regardless I'll hang on to my copper IC as it's the one source of copper I use.
