I am interested in building a jockey box.....is it possible to use vinyl hose to make my coils, or would it not get cold enough and the beer would be nothing but foam?

I've seen this question come up regularly. It is usually regarded that stainless steel is superior because of its higher thermal conductivity, but I can't find a quoted measure of how conductive vinyl hose would be. I think this is because "vinyl" hose is often used as a generic name for clear tubing...

I say give it a lash, use plenty of tubing and see what happens. Worst case is you have plenty of siphon tubing spare if it doesn't work out...
