Just posted this on ebay today and want to put a link here. I built this monstrosity a few days ago and just tested it today. Leak tested and wort tested. Took boiling wort down to 71 deg. using tap water at 68 deg. in about 10 - 15 minutes. No need for ice with this baby! You won't find many of these for sale online. Homebrew Supply stores are selling a 25 ft. model for $77 - $119. Thanks for looking!

Price is pretty steep. I purchased mine for less than $100.

Really? Maybe prices are regional, but I can put together two 25 footers for around $100.

50' ft 3/8" ID Copper coil - $60
50' ft garden hose - $20
Brass fittings + zip ties - $40

Getting a 50' ft copper coil inside a 50' ft garden hose...priceless!

Haha nice.
I've found the rubber hoses work better for feeding copper through. Plus they can stand hot water longer.
