Cleaning a Heat Exchanger

Attention to cleanliness is paramount when it comes to making beer. Bacteria is on everything all the time, which can and will cause unwanted off-flavors in your finished beer. I know all of this and yet I still never really considered cleaning my heat exchanger properly.

After a brew day I would stick the garden hose into the ports on the exchange and rinse out the brown wort and hop debris until it stopped coming out. I figured the rinse was enough, since I sanitize before each use. Enough until my good friend and great brewer, Kyle, made a comment about cleaning heat exchangers. I guess I had not really considered it until then.
