I’m contemplating the use of a copper immersion chiller. Currently, doing partial batches, I’m able to cool my wort fairly quickly in an ice bath, then adding cooled water in the carboy. I’d like to go to full boils, thus researching the use of a wort chiller.
I’ve seen some people add the IC to the wort boil, to sanitize it. Are there any affects to the wort by doing this (eg – metallic taste)??
