Interesting project and I was looking at doing something similar after seeing the BYO article a while back.

I was hoping to get away with less than 20' of stainless tubing but haven't done the math yet. Those convoluted counterflow chillers only use about 12' of tubing if I recall correctly.

One variation I was thinking about was to split off the water inlet such that each "run" of stainless or every other one would be using water at it's source temp.

I was also planning on using CPVC so the water could be reused for cleaning with minimal concern.

Yes Nebulous, thank you. looks pretty good. I can see your details very well.
One thought I had was, what about using Grommets and end caps where the copper passes through? Maybe too much water pressure? Have you got to use it yet? love to hear about your results.
Thank You in Advance for your Time and Info....!
