so don’t worry @cke11y i don’t think you sound like an asshole and input is always appreciated!
apologies for my late reply, next to my build i’m also doing a home renovation and that eats a lot of time
anyway i appreciate your concerns cke11y.
I think that whatever you are using, you will always have to pull it apart every now and then.
what i however believe in this case is that after your perform a brew, you fill the boil kettle with water, boil it, then slowly flush the system with this near-boiling water. as long as it’s over 70 degrees you should be able to at least melt and soak up most of the gunk. after a rinse with PWM and then another slow flush i think most of the junk should be out.
let’s say you don’t get it all, it would then get stuck in the filters… so i think we should be good… and taking it apart once a year is indeed something you would need to do.
