    What herms coil length

    The long debate about what length has overwhelmed me in my herms build. Would 25ft of 1/2 stainless be sufficient enough or should I go with the 50ft big boy? Hlt is a keggle. Or 3/8? Sent from my iPhone using Home Brew

    Weld herms coil fittings?

    Trying to get my herms system going here. Does anyone weld or solder their compression bulkheads to their kettle at all? Or is the weld less fittings the way to go? Just trying to save some money where I can. Thanks Charles Sent from my iPhone using Home Brew
