Free to a good home. Well... not 100% free.

From the photos can see a plumbing "friend" ruined the counterflow wort chiller.

Free. Hopefully, someone can rescue it.

In return I ask either

A few beers at a local pub

or

A case of Anchor Steam Beer.

Prefer someone local to me in Manassas, VA

Greetings KB - I suggest unbrazing the tee, cutting the tube it's blazed to with a tube cutter and resolder the tee.  From there you can rebuild the connection for the ID tube.  You will have to swing the tee into another direction, but it can be bepaired.  Unless you prefer not fixing it, it should be able to be repaired in about an hour or so by someone who can handle a torch. Perhaps a refrigeration repair company can help.

I'm done brewing for a while. :(  The "sight glass" on my Polar Ware 15 gal. brew kettle took a dump for the 4th time and Polar Ware can't come up with a fix and their response to this issue ignored the fact that their plastic sight gauge repeatedly fails under normal operating conditions!! >:(

According to KellerBrauer this is fixable. Therefore, if anyone local to me is able to fix I am willing to pay for repairs. Or, exchange a few pints at a local brewery.

Let me know.
