    Btw, I love the pic with the unraveled Teflon tape there xD I just highlights the frustration
    I'm sure you're experiencing..If the tubing is 3/8s and it's still loose, go one size lower.
    You can heat ...

    The correct fix would be to go and find a tubing which will fit snug over the copper tubing,
    but then you will have to also get the fittings. But like I said I have had to use electrical
    tape in a sim...

    Plumber's tape is really for threads, it's doesn't adhere.Ah. That was the suggestion that my
    local hardware store gave me, and it did work once, but that might explain why it didn't work
    twice?

    Also, the design of that is a bit of a problem. Any way you can bend the top of that tubing so
    your connections are outside of your pot? If you get leaks (even the occasional drip) it will
    run into yo...

    Looks to me as though the tubing ID is a bit too big, not allowing for a complete seal. The
    tubing should not loosely slip over the copper tubing but be a little snug. Just my
    observation.That's what ...

    Do you have a picture of the chiller? Does the plastic tubing just slip over the end of the
    copper pipe? Did the clamps come with the chiller?Hold on a second. Yes. Yes.

    I am terrible at DIY stuff, which is why I bought a chiller instead of trying to make one
    myself. Sadly, even buying one apparently requires more DIY competence than I actually have. I
    brewed for the ...

    was the wort stirred well before you took the pre-boil sample? If you got some of the first
    runnings you would expect them to be higher gravity.Yeah, I stirred for a few minutes, and I do
    BIAB, so the...
