I have been using a immersion chiller for a while now. I was thinking about upgrading to a plate chiller or making a pump bucket for it. I can’t remember if it was something I read or heard on a podcast …anyone have any experience rigging up a little pump in a bucket with ice water to recirculate the chilling water? I was looking at Lowes/Home Depot today and the one I liked the most was a flotech water pump for emergency situations, filling & draining water beds ect. Price was 87 bucks though. I would like to find something cheaper but I can make that work if need be. I chilled a brown ale today from boiling to 64 in around a half hour or less while stirring the wort every few minutes. The reason I really want something more efficient is I am on a well and hate flooding my yard or filling buckets to water all the plants.
