I use line from the hardware store for brewing and racking purposes, but strictly the stuff from the beer store for serving. I think that it's a different material, and I've never seen such thick walled stuff at the hardware store.

Beer Line has a smoother inside wall. Hardware store line will give you issues with foam control.
