I've been waiting a week for what I thought was 50' of 3/8" copper tubing I bought on eBay for an immersion chiller. I misread the posting and when it showed up today I realized that what I actually bought was 3/16" tubing.
I may try to exchange it at Home Depot (it's a brand they carry) toward 3/8" or 1/2" tubing if they'll let me. If not, I'm wondering if I could make it work. I only make 5 gallon batches in a 7.5 gal. kettle. I know a lot of guys only use 20 or 35 feet of copper for those sizes. Since I have 50' instead, would it work for me to use the smaller tubing with a longer length?
If not, anybody want to make me an offer on 50' of 3/16" OD copper tubing???
