Looking for opinions here for my HERMS coil guys. To try to make this somewhat cost effective....would I be better off with:
25' of 1/2" Stainless steel coil
50' of 1/2 Copper coil
I will be doing equal amounts of 5-10 gallon batches
Im right just under 25' of copper(mounted in the kettle) with mine and it works great. Are you considering mounting in the kettle or doing a immersion style?

Definitely not a real brewery just one guy making a lot of alcohol.
Good to hear. I'm going to mount it....why. do you ask?
Copper will transfer heat more efficiently than stainless. This from a person with a stainless herms coil.

I asked because you will need more if you have the tales hanging out the top but 25' mounted inside should be plenty. I only set my hlt 1-2 degrees warmer then my set mash temp and it holds great.
