I just watched the video as I have never seen it before. Sorry. I was trying to help out two people with one post. I thought it would help out more.
While I am not familiar with the SS, cause I have never bent it into a coil. I have done lots of copper. I would imagine that warping it around a keg would be the same as copper. It will be a lot more tiresome, but doable. The radius is not a small one. I do know that you are much more smart with your money then I am cause, I would have already had it wrapped around a keg and if it didn't work, then I would ask. Good luck and I hope someone with experience chimes in for you.
Edit; Here is a post from The Pol about his 1/2" SS chiller he has/made/bought??? It looks like I am wrong about being able to bend it. Again, Good luck.
"Bought the coil as a HD chiller from Midwest.
Trust me, you arent going to bend 1/2" SS tubing that nicely, it is VERY HARD! I hope the rest of the build goes a little easier."
