I just bought 50 feet of 3/8 in O.D. copper tubing at the hardware
store for $20. I plan to coil it for a wort chiller, but what do I
do with the ends? Right now I think I'll put the coil in a bucket of
ice water and run the hot wort through it into another bucket.

So what do I do? do I just get some 3/8 in I.D. plastic tubing to put
on both ends? If so, how do I start the siphon? If I attached some
sort of mini-funnel to the start of the chiller, I could fill the
plastic tube with water and stick one end in the boiling wort and one
end in the funnel.

Also, do I do anything special before I use it the first time?
Thanks.
