Did you cut the coil, and how did you connect that to the tubing?
I did cut this tubing, it was originally a "pre chiller" from B3, then I used the above listed compression and hex fittings to attach the QDs.

The part number is listed above.... 50785k94

Another question for any experts out there. I'm getting ready to purchase my HERMS coil and want to get 50' 1/2" tubing (I think). The "refrigeration" grade tubing is WAY cheaper than type K or L but does not seem to be NSF rated for liquids (from what i can find). Is there any real difference btwn refrigeration grade and the others besides wall thickness? Any health concerns?

Pol, Do you think 50' of 1/2" for your coil is overkill or would 25' be plenty? Also did you get 1/2" OD or 1/2" ID (5/8" OD)?

I am not Pol, but he has used 25ft copper pre chiller from B3. It would seem a waste to use 50ft IMO. He only has a few degree difference between the HLT and the MLT.

I'm not sure how much extra wort you would lose in the extra 25'.
I'd stick with 25.

Thanks. I misread his post. I shouldn't lose any wort though as the sparge water will get pumped through the coil during the sparge to clear out any wort.
