So, if there’s one thing that bothers me about brewing, it’s how much water is wasted when using an immersion chiller. I do all my brewing outside, and I’ve come up with a couple of ways to avoid total loss of all that water, such as routing it to a rain barrel or catching it in a cooler and dumping it on our compost. Another idea I’m thinking of is attaching a hose fitting to the outflow end so I can run a sprinkler where needed while chilling the wort.
Anyone else come up with other uses, or maybe a way to store it for future brews? My concern here is it would get funky by the time I used it.
