Here's a picture of a friend's homemade chiller that I used yesterday. I don't know the total length, but I would guess it's close to 50'. I really like the fact that it has a sort of "twin coil" design as opposed to the traditional single coil. The more coil you have in the wort, the more surface area you have and the quicker you can cool. When I used it yesterday it brought my wort from boiling to about 75-80 in under 15 minutes. I'm planning on making mine this way now.
