Default Wort chiller copper

Is there any reason why this copper won't work for me to make a wort chiller?

Shop Mueller 3/8" x 50' Refrigeration Coil at Lowes.com

If it won't what kind of copper should i be looking for?

thanks for any help.

I believe that is the same tubing I got from Lowes also. If I recall correctly it is 3/8" OD, meaning you need to select your fittings appropriately (1/4" ID). I used all 50 feet ant it will cool a 6.5 gallons of boiling wort in a very reasonable amount of time-usually 15 minutes or less-depending on the temp of my water (Summer/Winter etc).

I don't think he would have been asking if he was serious.

Zrab11, check this DIY kit. Shipping is a bit high but you get everything you need to make a wort chiller.
