New Hose!

I had to get some more hose.   😉  Cleaning the kegs and the fermentors (sprayballed) with the new pump blew out my barbed silicone hoses and made an enormous water mess.  I needed some better hoses to withstand temperature and pressure of cleaning, while also sanitary enough to use for transferring hot wort and other stuff.

I found some used Aflex BioFlex RC hose from a person on Probrewer.  This is the real-deal.  Pharmaceutical grade.  I got 4 in 6′ lengths.

I had to (wince) cut the triclover off of one of these to put a keg coupler barb on to use in keg cleaning.  This is good stuff.
