I am going to build a counterflow chiller and am looking at coppertubingsales.com I am just unsure of what type of tubing to use. Will the refrigeration tubing work? The type k and type L don't come in 25' rolls. I want to use BobbyM's design. thanks

Yup, just use the stuff that is for sale at Menards and Home Depot. It bends easily and is relatively inexpensive.

Drinking: Sour Brown, Schlitz...
