Curious about the answers to your first question, I'm planning to build a CFC and have the same copper tubing ready to go. If it makes any difference I plan to sanitize by running boiling wort through the CFC so think that means a higher temp rating for the garden hose.
Thanks, baulz, yep I got the 1/4" reducers today and after filing down the stops inside them, they juuuust slide onto my tubing! WOOT! Now all I need is the hose.
Bettersense, thanks for your suggestion! I've seen PEX tubing in the stores. What makes it a better choice?
