I have seen the video and will be using it as a guide once I get the tubing. He puts out some great videos.

I used reinforced hosing that you get in the dishwasher supply/plumbing section in your home improvement store. It came in 10' lengths and I just cut it to size. I hope it holds up OK.

If you're not reusing the water for drinking or brewing then it doesnt matter what tubing you use. If doesnt matter if they leach impurities into water.
If you plan on reusing the water, then using something rated for 180F+ just to be safe.

I just finished my immersion chiller and want to find hose that won't melt while the chiller is being sterilized in the boiling wort.

Just make sure the hoses dont touch the burner or stand and ull be fine.

until i switched to food safe high temp hoses, i just used whatever homedepot had.

+1. I got 50 ft 3/8th OD ref. for like 36 bucks. I'm gonna make Bobby's, and use the leftover for a nice little immersion chiller for when I'm just doing 5 gal.

Nice 50ft 1/2 inch. Looks solid!
