I brew outside and use an IC. I usually use a pond pump and snow in the winter for chill water, but I don’t presently have snow. It’s presently below freezing, so running the hose seems like a bad idea. Do any of you cold weather brewers have a workaround?
I am starting to think about a plate chiller, as I could probably leave out a tub of water to freeze and recirculate with that. I am curious if there’s a practical solution for an IC for now.
