Have you used a plate chiller? I got one as part of a craigslist purchase and not sure which way I want to go. Pic's would be nice you know.....
Just because you
missed the brewcast yesterday where I broadcast it for the entire world to see doesn't mean everyone else did
Yeah, I've used a plate chiller. The problem I have with it is that it leaves the majority of the wort sitting near boiling in the kettle for awhile, then chills it little by little. The whirlpool IC chills it all at the same time. After flameout, the longer your wort sits about 140f, the better your chances are of developing DMS precursors and getting lots of cold break in your fermenter.
That, and I already had an IC, so that's another $80+ that I didn't need to spend.
