Immersion chiller materials question
hey everybody, a friend and I are about to make a couple of immersion chillers, and I had a couple of questions:
1, is there a different between utility grade copper tubing and type L, aside from type L being twice as expensive. the package on the utility grade stuff says it's good for water service so I'm thinking it must be food safe... but I was still wondering
2, is there a specific type of tubing that I need to use? I found plain old clear vinyl tubing at home depot, but I'm not sure if it's food safe (I'll have some tubing left over after I'm done with the IC so I was going to use it for racking, bottling etc) is there a specific type of tubing required for racking?
