I just built a wort chiller and have yet to use it.  I was planning on using
plain old clear plastic tubing to connect the chiller outlet to the sink, but
I'm concerned that the tubing will melt or something.  Is this what most
people use or should I get some high-temp tubing from a plumbery??

Thanks, Andy

Dont worry about high temp tubing.  Plain old clear plastic does the
job.  It doent get that
hot anyway.  You must have copper though for the part that is in the wort.
