Yep, It's my "water" purifier. I collect all my yeast starter pour off and when I have enough, I run it through my purifier. Sugar and corn washes get the same treatment. It helps round out my education. Richard.

Water purifier? How about a distillation column?

Nice system. I like the CFC on legs! Copper in copper. Bet that was tough to do.

It wasn't bad. I unrolled the 1/2" and 3/4" copper to make it as straight as possible and pushed the 1/2" thru till 18" stick out the ends and then start rolling. Attach the fittings and soldier. Pretty straight forward. Richard.

Richard, What is your procedure in cooling off yeast starters to pour off? I would be interested in how long you cool off and then warm back up for pithcing.
Thanks ELK

Elk, I don't crash cool my starters. I let them ferment out then let them clear on their own(a couple days) I generally ferment ale strains at 70 deg (starters). I pour off whats clear, swirl whats left then pitch. I keep my left over beer (starter)in a carboy in the refer until I have enough then run thru my purifier. Richard
