I’m requesting your advice for cleaning and care of copper wort chillers. Like other brewers, after the cool down I pull my wort chiller out of the pot and it’s usually covered with stuck on grain and hop residue. I put mine in a tub and wash it with dish soap using a brush or cloth. It’s difficult to get between the rings properly. It has been suggested that I can put it into my dishwasher for cleaning, but I’m worried the liquid in the rinse cycle may damage copper.
