I’ve got a good immersion chiller, 50 ft. Of 1/2 in. Copper. Trouble is, is that I’m brewing in my kitchen so it’s not uncommon to find me dragging a couple garden hoses through the house to work that son of a gun. The gf is not a fan of this practice.
I was thinking of just freezing some milk jugs and putting it in a cooler with water to make super cold h2o. Then hook up an aquarium pump to circulate the water from cooler through IC and back I to the cooler.
Has anyone tried something similiar to this? My only fear is that there might be too much heat for it handle and just melt all the ice before it is effective leaving me with a cooler of hot water that’s not aiding in the cooling effect.
The other thought was mega cold break! If it works according to plan that is.
thoughts? Maybe more effort than worth.
