That video makes me want to build a 50ft 1/2" diameter chiller and turn my current chiller into a prechiller.

Sweet video Bobby! I'm putting in an order for som copper ASAP.
I think you need a director though, it seemed to be shot at crotch level

I'm available and I accept all forms of payment including beer and pizza.

Or maybe you're just re-evaluating your friendship with Jay?!

JK... good video...

I thought some people might be interested in some more information on the garden hose fittings. I was unable to find them at the Lowe's closest to my house but I stopped at another Lowe's on my way home from work today and got a pair.

The Watts numbers for these are:
A-491 - Male Garden Hose (3/4") to Hose Barb (5/8")
A-492 - Female Garden Hose (3/4") to Hose Barb (5/8")

I'd advise anyone intending to replicate this to order the 3/8" (1/2" OD) hard copper ahead of time. They only sell it in short (2 ft) lengths at Lowe's/HD (I checked two of each, actually) and it's $7.97 + tax . I did buy it, but I'm going to check a couple local plumbing places tonight.

That's why I cut the short straight pieces I needed off the 50 foot coil. Much cheaper.

Ach so!
I thought you'd said "spare pieces." That doesn't help me with the verticals, but at least I can keep them as tall as possible that way.

Super-cool video how-to.

My next big piece of equipment really needs to be a chiller and I think I'd rather build this one than buy one.

Thank you!

Sorry, I wasn't clear. Every piece of tubing that went into that chiller was from the larger 50' coil. The long upright, short upright and both horizontals.
