hello guys,
thanks to this forum(source for cu tubing) I finished my new wort chiller. My little bit of trick was to turn the inside of the 5/8 hose ends so they would fit over the tube and be swetted:

thats a heavy duty wort chiller. how many feet of copper tubing did you use? I'm sure it works great

50' ish you can see the bright mark at the bottom where i did a 5 gal batch, it should work perfectly for 11 gal batch in the keggel.

copper prices in the store are CRAZY osh wants +90$ for 50' of 1/2~3/8 while hd wants near 70$ (+ 10% tax) I forget how much I paid for it online but I think it was under 40$ +shipping **edit: it was 47$ just found the shipper** (which wasn't too much because i think they gave it to a meth head hitch hiking across country)
