Not the prettiest wort chiller ever, but probably half price of what you would pay at the homebrew store, and just as functional.

20 ft 5/8" OD copper tubing
8 feet of 5/8" ID vinyl tubing
female garden hose adapter
3 hose clamps
total cost ~ $33

I also read that you should give it a good soapy water scrub before using to remove any remaining oils or chemicals that come on the copper tubing.

*UPDATE* I used this for the first time in an actual brew. It definitely cooled the wort down faster than my older one. And at the end when I do my ice-water-siphon trick (unhook it from the tap water and siphon ice water through to bring it down to the final pitching temp) the water came GUSHING out through much faster than it ever did before. I had to really stay on top of pouring the water back into the top bucket. It seems that, yes, the thicker diameter tubing does cool the wort down faster.
