It looks like the inner coil is about the diamiter of a korny keg the outer about the size of your average 5 gallon propane bottle, both work great for froming copper tubing.

Only thing different I would do is T the 3/8 coils and have only two 1" in/outs.

Outside of that, it's pretty bad.

This is what is most effective for me. I do 11g batches. Once my single tier is done i am moving to a plate chiller.

if you want to get crafty, you can easily make your own chiller of any length with any diameter.
I agree with this. Why not make your own and have what is good for your system? I use a 5/8" OD 1/2" ID chiller I made because it's all about surface area when talking about quick chilling. Lowes currently sells a 50' coil for $90. A couple of compression fittings and you're all set. If I can solder, anyone can!
