Extended filamentary nebulae of cold, dense gas are a striking feature of nearby brightest cluster galaxies, and represent an important component of the gas life cycle in galaxy clusters. While their formation mechanism and the processes which shape their morphology remain areas of research, the huge cavities frequently observed in the circumgalactic medium, which are inflated by the AGN driven jets of the Brightest Cluster Galaxy, play a decisive role in the formation and evolution of these nebulae. These emission nebulae therefore represent one of the most direct examples of AGN influencing the gas life cycle in and around their host galaxies. In this talk, I will present work that uses simulations to investigate the condensation and evolution of this cold gas under the influence of a spin-driven AGN jet in a Perseus-like clusters.
