Yeah, that's what I was planning on. That coppertubingsales.com place had some rather cheap copper. Catching up paying for the kegerator I just built and then it's chiller time!

Oh and don't forget to keep the tubing away from the hot burner as well...Had a few too many brews while brewing and melted the tubing when not paying attention!

Not gonna lie, as of right now we carry our five gallon batches down a flight of stairs to cool. This requires two people to do without feeling like you're going to die though. Even then, still kind of feel like your going to wind up on your back with hot sugar water melting your skin off if you're the one on the bottom but I guess that is what makes you not drop it right? This is maybe our subconsciousness motivation for continuing to lift weight?

Seriously though, you and a buddy could get it up some steps, but it's more than likely not the best idea.

I did this same thing today.... Nothing a little duct tape and a strong grip couldn't fix until we were done chilling

I'm hoping he has acquired a chiller over the last 4 years!

For your chiller, go to Lowe's, buy some flexible copper tubing, some clear vinyl tubing and some hose fittings and done.

Get yourself a chiller asap; you'll be sooo glad you did! So worth it. Make your own like BM sez, or just bite the bullet and purchase one. yOu won't regret it. And your beer will be happier; less chance of nasties.

I've been doing some late evening brews lately...and just placing my kettle outside overnight...and pitch when I wake up in the morning...seems to work really well...

I did this on Tuesday with the same results, but I used a plastic storage tote. Works just fine if you have the patience.

For the mechanically and household-handy-impaired (me) is that half inch or 1 inch copper? The price is literally double between the two.

I.e. would this work:

Lowes copper tubing
