I know this has been done a billion times before, but I just wanted to share the newest addition to my brew set-up. I got all the parts at Lowe's for a grand total of $27.09 (excluding tax).
20' of 1/4" (ID) x 3/8" (OD) flexible copper tubing - $15.01
10' of vinyl tubing - $3.68
2 hose clamps - $0.97
faucet adapter - $7.43
I used an asparagus steamer to help coil the copper.
Pretty cool, let us know how she works
Awesome. I think you just inspired me to stop by Lowes/HD before brewing tomorrow.
Maybe consider bending the ends of the IC toward the outside. When the flexible tubing gets hot, it may kink and restrict water flow. Overall, nice clean job.
+1 on melt... get that tubing 1 ft away from the pot and you can forget worrying about drip or melting...
hmmm....never considered melting...I'll see what I can do about that - thanks for the head's up. I'll go splurge for another set of clamps too. Can't wait to try this baby out!
by the way, you have one hell of a camera, those might be the nicest pics I've seen on the site.
Very nice, thank for posting. Definitely let us know how it turns out.
