Can you still achieve the sulfide removal if you basically soak your finished product in a container with the copper mesh after the run? Sorry if the question sounds silly, but I'm trying to figure out if the benefit of copper only exists with vapor, or is if will provide the same sulfide extraction after the run. Any help is appreciated.

I think I'll give the copper mesh a try first. Thanks for the input and help.

Cheap copper????? Buyer beware! Not everything "posing" as copper really is. Make sure you're not enticed by the "too good to be true" sales pitch. You may be surprised in the end.

Cob- I'd be interested in finding 1000' for $30! I can usually find the best deals but that market didn't seem very flexible (but I'll keep looking).. Point me in a direction:)
