I am building an immersion chiller (following this tutorial). Looking at hose pipes online I was surprised to find them rated for temperature. Standard garden hose seems to be up to 40C (104F) and 'heavy duty' hose up to ~50C (122F).
All the tutorials I have looked at just mention hose pipe without mentioning anything about temperature rating. The chap in the one I am following just grabbed some from the garden..
I have no idea how hot the water leaving the chiller will actually be beyond 'somewhere between ground water temp and 100C'. I do know that some people like to collect the first few gallons to then use for cleaning as it is hot enough for that. So I am thinking that 50C isn't unrealistic when the wort is still ~100C?
Will the water coming out be hot enough to damage a regular hose pipe?
