Completely agree. Both poor and not wanting to waste water, I go the ol' No-Chill route usually. Used to do ice baths, but no chill is so much easier, and it saves a lot of time and effort.

And even tho my wort is plenty cloudy, my no-chill beers couldn't be clearer. (Even won a few medals to prove it.)

So you mean you don't use any cooling method at all? Do you do full or partial boils and how long does it typically take to get to pitching temperature?

I only do full boils. I just leave everything in the kettle with the top on and leave it on my front porch overnight. By morning, it's the same temp as it is outside. Never had an infected batch.
