Copper vs. Brass

Postby firstbrew » Wed Dec 19, 2001 7:55 am

Thinking of building a wort chiller and curious if I should use copper or brass tubing ?
I remember hearing one of these elements was not the best choice due to
the metal contributing to off flavors. Can someone clairify this one for me ?
Thanks > FirstBrew

Go with Copper. It is a very good conductor of heat and is very efficient in the cooling process. I have used one many times a I never had any odd flavors.
