comment Is the price of copper making plate chillers the better choice?
I have a Therminator and until recently it was my single most costly piece of brewing equipment but after 4 years, I still feel it was a great investment. Also I have found that a rigorous cleaning protocol immediately after use has avoided any issues. Reverse flush with hot water, then soak in PBW then sanitizer with the rest of my brewing items. Now the Chillzilla is roughly the same price...

comment Insulating My Mash Tun
@Dean, yes this certainly seems to happen but wrap my keg above the skirt so I have about 3 inches of clearance. despite this if I only heat gently it seems to hold on and not spread beyond the lower inch or so although I did have one catch fire once... but that's another story.
