One thing I didn't see mentioned about bending copper tubing is that
you can't just bend any old piece of tubing. You need to get tubing
that is sold for bending. Then you can use a tree limb, you hands or
a tubing bender to make your racking tube.

Another nifty little gadget you can make with 6" of surplus tubing:
Drill several 1/16" holes around the tubing about one inch from one
end. Stick that end into the outlet of your chiller/racking hose.
WHen racking the holes will suck in air and aerate your wort. No need
to shake the carboy after using one of these gizmos.
