So if I wanted to go with the cheap route right now, would it be "safe" and would it leave a taste in the wort if all I was using the tubing for was draining out of the mash tun into the kettle? Is any vinyl tubing I find ok? Menards?

Any hardware store (if that's what Menards is), Home Depot, Walmart.
Clear PVC vinyl tubing, usually 40c per foot.
I used it for 3 or 4 batches and never noticed any plastic flavors.
But I switched to silicone quick.

Just easier and better.

Save up $20 and pick it up, well worth it.
