Default 60 foot copper tube wort chiller

Well........25 feet of tubing wasn't long enough to reach out of my brew pot...and the only other longer size they had at Lowes in 3/8th inch was 60 feet.....and I didn't want to buy a tube cutter......sooooo...I used the whole 60 feet!!!! ....here's some pics





210 to 80 degrees in 9 minutes....this was my first time chilling wort...is that a good time?

get a tube bender. They are pretty cheap and would make that beast look even better.

Mine was only 25 ft, but I used a corny as the form; just keep it tight, and it looks great!

That 60' could make an awesome dual coil! I don't think I have the confidence or patience to attempt making one. Now that I think of it I have never seen a homemade dual coil. Does anybody have one?
