If I had that much copper, I'd probably have made something far different, but I have to admit that it looks pretty cool. I hope it works half as good as it looks.

Probably could have build a small mansion.

Is that really real? Could be Photoshop image of a super chiller. Could be an image of my dream chiller.

Bet if you move it up and down during the cooling process, it'll cool 10 gallons in under 10 minutes. Bet it'll also burn your hand doing that!

You guys got a great looking chiller there, regardless of how much copper you used. It should be able to chill fast, agitate a little, it'll be even faster. Nicksteck and I chill to 68 deg in under 5 min w/ ours (5gal) Do you have an idea of how much copper you have and in what lengths?

here are the original chillers from hell!

I'm starting to think homebrewers are causing the rise in copper prices.

Just a note. This chiller (actually it was the third gen Franckenchiller) was featured in the HomeBrew Nation section of BYO this month.
