1/2" S/S would be a bear to coil unless you have a tube bender.  In addition, you would have better heat transfer with brass.

Equipment and Software / Ice Cube MLT conversion
« on: January 09, 2010, 03:05:47 PM »
Trying to convert a 60 Gal Ice Cube.  This is the one with the drain about 1-1/2" from the bottom & at a 45Degree angle.  The wheel axel connects both wheels creating a hump on the inside. 

Will Denny's braid work on this? Or will there be about 2-3" of wort left in the Tun.

Did 5 gal Chocolate Oatmeal Stout, Kegged 20 gal beer & 5 gal mead

Bucket, water, honey.  Stir like hell.  If I need to get the last bit of honey out of the container, use a sanitzed spatula.  I will rinse the last bit out with some heated water, but the volume does not appreciably raise the temperature of the must.
