    Have an unexpected day off tomorrow so I'm going to have my oldest son(8) help me design an immersion cooler for my wort...Going to simply call it "42"(if you know, you know).

    Will post pics tomorrow.

    Filling pipe with sand at tricky bits helps prevent the kinky sh!t it's what I remember from my trial and error immersion chiller build.

    You can also go to Lowe's, Home Depot and get a spring bender kit, probably $7, prevents tube from kinking, works a treat!
