I did use a water and ice mixture. I only used two bags of ice and I had to add a lot of water to cover the coils. I think I will use more ice next time. Any suggestion on the ice to water ratio?

So I've been researching jockey boxes and I have a couple questions:

5/16" or 3/8" coils? (I think 5/16 is the better for cooling, but 3/8" =less CO2)
50ft coils or 70ft coils?
Best way to...

Thanks for the replies.

I'm thinking the jockey box is the way I will go. I pitched it to the fiancÚ and she's for it. So we will be building one.

Any tips for building one or using one?

Thanks for the info. That makes sense. I have 8 foot lines. Could I compensate by lowering my temperature?

Also, I don't have a fan in my keezer to circulate the air. Could this help?
