Default This is what I got for about $40 incl shipping

I got this off amazon and it was like 35 plus I 8 or so shipping I didn't get to test it yet. How do you guys think in looks? I was expecting it to be bigger. Stay tuned for me saying it's awesome after I get to test it. PS I put the pencil there for a scale.

Looks really nice, how many feet is it? Tell us some specs after using it. My first IC got me so excited that I boiled 5 gallons of water that night just to test it out. I'm sure you will be satisfied compared over what you may have been using.

It looks pretty small with thin lines, but for the price it's not too bad looking.
It should save you a lot of time cooling to wort.

Yeah I'm probably gonna do that in little bit. I think it's 1/4 inch but I have to check how many feet.

I must have skip the part that gave the diameter but as long as it works for 5gallon batches I'll be happy.

When you use it make sure you stir as well to keep stratification at bay.

Look at the pencil. The tubing looks to be close to the same size.

So it's been about 15 minutes and it took about 3 1/2 gallons from boiling to about 70. Not bad

Not bad at all.
I'd say for the money it was well worth it.
