Used 3 times, has compression fittings for hose attachments. Length is 20ft of 3/8" copper. Need to sell cause it wont fit in my new brew kettle. Soldered the tail pieces for added strength. Measures 16.5" from the base to the bottom of the fittings.

60 bucks shipped, obo...

Ok, I'll definitely want one, just a little short on cash right now. I'll probably send you a message in a week or so. And I can pick it up so we dont have to worry about shipping.

Are these now $50 shipped or still $60 shipped, as in your post #1 with the fittings? I'm at 32401 zip. Thanks...
If ya want fittings it would be 60, if ya want it bare it would be 50...I however like just using the hose with the hose clamps. Those compression fittings are hit or miss, some leak and some dont....Up to you though

You just tell me how high ya need it and will build it;)

35 with no fittings, 45 with fittings.....Sounds like a plan, love the brat stop:)

I use the better grade copper, Its not as forgiving as the cheaper stuff so it lasts longer and dont loose its shape as easy as the lower grade..

Here are a few i just did for some members here, price is 55 bucks plus shipping (I use a better grade copper than your normal HBS sells) for the ones that have both hose attachments, if ya want it bare prices are lower. I can make it as tall or as short as ya want it, totally customized chillers to meet the needs of your specific brew kettle... These wont deform over time, just cause of the stiffer higher grade copper i use...

Prices are for 20ft 3/8 chillers.....Im not a vendor in anyway, just like making cool stuff for home brewers like myself so if this is not allowed please feel free to delete mods...

Are you still making these? And if so would it be possible to get one with about 40ft? I need one for 10 gallon batches. Without the hardware at top?

Very nice looking chillers! The only thing I would see to change is add a few inches to the ends so if the hose connections leak, it is outside the pot instead of into the wort.

I think the next length available would be 50ft, i dont buy in bulk so i cant cut just 40ft. If ya would like one I could have one built in a few days. 50 footer without fitting would be 75-80 bucks, copper goes up from time to time so if your interested I can get an accurate quote for ya tomorrow..

If I can get a 50' 3/8" chiller with lengthened tubes up top and no hardware for around $80 I will take one for sure.
