Perfect
I brew in converted kegs, so the bigger the immersion chiller the better and this is the only 70' chiller I found on the market. I was going to build my own since it seemed fairly easy, but due to the inflated price of copper tubing these days combined with the price of the other materials and tools I would have had to purchase to master a self made project, it turned out a bust for price matching. So why do though all the effort of making my own when I can buy one for the same price?It's sturdy, and uses quality components. Nothing bad can be said about it.

great product
I brew smaller amounts, but this chiller has been stellar. It brings things down to desired temperature incredibly fast and is easy to clean. hose fittings a major plus as well.

Chilling is great
I had used a homemade 35 foot chiller before. This is the real deal. I too didn't test the connections before chilling the first batch. The compression fittings just needed tightening a bit. WOW! I had a 5 gal batch in a 7.5 gal pot. I went from boiling to under 90 deg F in less than 5 minutes and that was with running my water through 100' garden hose on a warm day. Can you say cold break!?! This will chill wort quickly.

Wouldn't want to brew without it.
This thing is great, went from carrying full kettles to the bathtub and dealing with tons of ice and waiting an hour to cool properly...to full cooling in maybe 8 minutes. Definitely worth it. Great for 5 or 10 gallon batches. Just make sure your outgoing hose can handle the heat...near boiling water comes out at first.

Excellent product - fittings were loose on arrival
I am a new brewer. After the "ice bath" method of chilling my first 5 gallon batch I decided I needed a chiller. I chose this one for versatility, in case I want to do larger batches, but I did my second 5 gallon batch last weekend. I did a test run on 3 gallons of water in my 5 gallon aluminum brew (stock) pot. I hooked up a couple of hoses and had water spraying out of the joints. The fittings were loose, so I grapped a couple of wrenches and tightened them. That fixed the leaks. I cooled 3 gallons of water from boiling to 70 degrees in 7 minutes! On the real deal I cooled 2.5 gallons of wort from boiling in about 8 minutes. It's kind of bulky for my 5 gallon pot, but works great! I would recommend this for chilling wort - beats the heck out of the ice bath (30 minutes minimum).

XL Immersion Chiller 3/8"x70' with hose fittings
We are two brews in with the new immersion chiller.PROS:The wort chilled much quicker than we have seen with our smaller copper immersion chiller of about 25' as opposed to this 70' version. It cuts our time in at least half and saves on a lot of water. CONS:The washer does not stay securely in and was loose in the packaging. We almost accidentally threw it out when we were unpacking. Our first brew we didn't use it and has a massive leak. The second brew we used it and it helped a lot, but a NEW leak started behind the hose connection where the connection occurs between the pipe and the fitting. We use a 10 gallon mega pot and the coils don't fully submerge in 5 gallon wort (probably not too big of a deal). Because of the weight it's somewhat cumbersome to handle. We try not to grab near the connection points near the hose because of the leaks, but that doesn't leave many options and the chiller itself is pretty loose in terms of the structure. Hopefully it's an easy tightening of some hardware to resolve the leaks for the third brew. If this continues though it could lead to many contaminated and potentially ruined brew days. I know the price tag comes at the cost of copper, but the construction is average at best.

BEST ANSWER: For this style chiller with the garden hose connections, I would look at a large hardware store, they should have brass quick-disconnects in garden hose sizes, that's where I have found them before. We don't have any of those parts, but we do have some stainless steel quick disconnects, but they are not set up with garden-hose size threadings. Home Depot ought to have this sort of brass quick disconnects in garden hose size. - Mike W, Northern Brewer
