doesn't a cold water bath take much longer to cool than dropping ice directly into the wort? just because of the surface area issue?
a wort chiller is in the future for me just not exactly in my budget right now. i think it would cost approx 50-60 to get one not including fittings to run cold water from my sink.
not sure how well this would work in an appartment as well with lower water pressure . Has anyone had problems creating enough pressure to push through 50 ft or so of copper coil?
