Default Stainless HERMS Coil

I finally got everything needed to make my Stainless HERMS coil to fit my Keggle HLT. You can see from the photos that I tried the Corny keg bending on the first foot and it came out dreadful! I have a tubing roller now, fitted to do 1/2" stainless tubing. I couldn't be happier or less frustrated!

Very nice! Can you compress or shorten the height on the coil to fit in your kettle or will you have to hold it together with zip ties? Also, would you be interested in making a coil for me???

That looks amazing. Nice work on your coil. I've ruined one myself and seen many others fail too. You should be proud.
