I am attempting to assemble a mini-mash setup and am a little confused by
the various articles and description of the required parts.
In the mini-mash cooler the liquid temperature might get up to 190F in
extreme circumstances. Why does everyone use brass valves and fittings.
What is wrong with CPVC or PVC valves and fittings? They are rated for that
temperature and seem less expensive. They will sanitize well and are used
in other food service applications.
Am I missing something here?
