Default Need tubing advice before lunch break.. Help!

I need to go pick up some braided tubing from Lowes during my lunch break. I saw the other day they have the braided stuff but I don't know which is food safe. What do I need to look for to make sure what I'm buying is food safe?

Go to the plumbing section and look for a Stainless Steel Water connector. They will food safe because they're SS. You'll be taking (at least generally advised to) the rubber tube out anyway.

I'm assuming this is for a Mash Tun

Yes and no. I built my mash tun this past weekend and am planning on brewing tonight. I used 1/2" parts and I don't have any 1/2" tubing at home. I'm needing a hose to get the wort from the MLT to the BK. I am not using pumps right now but plan on it in the future so I was going to just go ahead and get tubing that could possibly be used later on when I introduce pumps into the system.

you will not find this at a hardware store. Nothing food safe rated for the temps needed.
You'll want this 2nd thing down the page.
Actually the first one listed will work to for transferring to a BK but isn't available in 1/2".

You can still brew tonight though. Just drain into a bucket from the nipple on your ball valve and transfer to the BK.
This stuff can definitely be used with your pumps too.
