Default Fittings to use with herms coil

I am constructing my HLT and I have a keggle and a 1/2" 50' refrigerator copper coil. I wasn't sure what the best fittings were to use with the inlet and outlet for the coil. Although my coil says 1/2" it appears that most regular straight pipe 1/2" copper fittings are much to big for the soft coil.

3/8" copper sweat fittings are 1/2" ID and will fit the 1/2" OD of the refrigerator copper coil. It is unexpected, but it worked for me.
