I measured the temp coming out of my tap and it was ~78F. And it was taking FOREVER to get my wort down to pitching temp using an immersion chiller. In the cooler months, this hasn’t been a problem.
I have two ideas in mind…
buying a second immersion chiller which will sit in a pot of water and ice. This chiller will be daisy-chained to a second immersion chiller which sits in the wort. The tap water will pass through the ice bath first and then into the kettle.
Buy a pump and pump the wort out of the kettle and into the immersion chiller which is sitting in an ice bath.
Any comments on these options or suggestions for an alternative?
