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.

maybe i'll post an ad:

Single male seeks double-jointed supermodel who owns a brewery and grows her own pot. Access to free concert tickets a plus!

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!
More like a sock monkey, really...

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!
