      Hi Tony,
      I'd do as greg suggests. I'd also get rid of the pvc tubing. Try ptfe
      or silicone if you can't use copper. Plastics have a way of leaching
      stuff that turns your hooch cloudy. that said, Greg's right, there are
      lots of reasons (all discussed on the sites mentioned).
      Cheers,
      Rob.
