The use of less expensive poly vinyl chloride (PVC) tubing (showin in picture) to transfer hot liquids is a highly debated topic amongst home brewers. While reinforced vinyl may technically 'work' in a brewing setup, we cannot recommend it for hot liquid transfers as most vinyl tubing is not food-grade approved nor is it rated for use up to the near boiling temperatures we will be using. In our experience off-flavours can also leech from the vinyl, especially when the tubing is new. This leeching increases at higher temperatures.

We recommend and use high temperature food-grade silicone tubing for anything that comes in contact with our brewing water or wort.

This tubing is perfectly adequate for passing chilling water.
