Has anyone used a jockey box as a wort cooler? I live in an apartment complex and have a garage where I would like to do my brewing. My problem is, that the closest water source is probably 50 yards away, and impractical to run multiple hoses across other peoples apartments.
I have been wondering if this would be an option? I would think that at first, the wort may be cooler than necessary, but towards the end, it may even out to a good pitching temp. I would suspect that very good temperature control and standing by with ice and possibly draining off the melted water would be a must if using this system.
Any thoughts, ideas, experiences etc would be greatly appreciated.
