I'd use some rice hulls. Sounds sticky.
I just made a batch of cream ale with 2#'s of corn and 1 # of rice.
What a mess, even with the rice hulls. Use a pound

umm...we are getting off topic because even if the OP bought pipe at HD or Lowes, it would still be so very much cheaper than buying a premade one. a 3/8 in wort chiller at my LHBS in brooklyn is $60.

now...I think what you are all failing to realize is that CONTRACTORS do not shop at retail stores...they couldn't bid low and profit well if they paid HD or Lowes prices. My wife's family are all plumbing, roofing and painting contractors so I go where they go.

Next you guys are going to tell me that my fermenters are stolen too because I got my food grade buckets from a restaurant supplier for $10 a piece instead of paying $17 at the LHBS. The only thing "stolen" in my whole set up is my tygon tubing because i took that from my lab.
Too many brews...too few bottles!!!
