I am wanting get my wort cooled faster without using a wort chiller. I cannot use a chiller because my landlord has a funky faucet connected to my sink. I currently use an ice bath for cooling but it takes quite a while. What do you do to chill faster? What do you think about the ideas below?
Adding blocks of ice (frozen in a well sanitized container of course) directly into the wort?
How about freezing a couple of 1 liter bottles, sanitizing them then putting them into the wort to help cool from the inside, in addition to the ice bath?
