Last june I built my HERMS. I use vinyl reinforced tubing I purchased from
morebeer.com . I have since brewed 120 gallons of beer. My hoses are
crimping and not withstanding the heat. Is there a better quality clear hose
that is food grade that can be used for the pumping and recirculation of hot
wort. I do whirlpool my boil kettle after running the immersion chiller for
a minute or so to get it below boiling but I figure i am still circulating
at 175F plus at times. What is my best long term option. I want something
clear that wont collapes. I like to watch the wort recirculating so i know
it is not stuck. Any help would be appreciated. Cheers to all.
