Any interest in releasing the design specs? Picture tells the story, but would love to build one of my own! Very impressive design.

Here is my cooling system. It fits in a 7 1/4 inch hole in keggle and allows room for hop bag as well. Top part not showing but it is only the fittings for the hoses.

Very cool. Mine is also a double coil but not near as nice looking.

I have been considering changing it to a CFC just because I have a temp probe that gets in the way at times and if I use hop bag or ball it is also in the way. At least that's my reasoning. My IC works very well but I am sure a CFC would work just as fast if not faster. I built a stand last summer so I now have two pumps on my Brutus type stand so running to CFC and back to BK is what I am thinking about doing OR right to primary if it works that good.

Great Job.
