Default Which tubing for CFC?

Last night I put together my version of Cheyco's CFC and everything went without a problem (a few leaks at first, but all fixed up with a few more turns of the wrench/screwdriver). But then I was looking for some tubing to go from my keggle to the CFC. The wort at this point will be close to boiling (> 200 degrees F), and all of the tubing from Menards is only rated up to 175 degrees F.

So what do people use to connect their kettle to their CFC?

Any plumbing supplier should have some high temp silicone hose. I use the braided dishwasher supply line personally, it works really well.

You can get away with the braid reinforced clear PVC if you want to see the flow. The thermoplastic is rated higher but you can't see through it. If you want ot do it right, silicone tubing is both semi-opaque and rated to 400F but you'll pay for it.
