That's a beautiful piece of hardware, but for $130, I'll stick with my $5 paint stirrer.

Yup, whatever floats your boat. Not only does it look beautiful, it works like a charm.

Try HERE, the pics disappeared at some point in time, but I do remember them being here in the beginning.

So if you put your pot in an ice bath, do you wait until your wort has reached 70F before you start the whirlpool ? If so I'm assuming while your waiting 10-15 minutes you drain the ice bath ? Or do you whirlpool right away then most likely after 10-15 minuteS you would reach the desired temperate ?

Also what if your wort gets to cold by the time you finish siphoning ? Or does that not really matter ?

to the OP Any chance of re-upping the pictures? This guide is in a stickied FAQ after all. I don't mind hosting them on my dropbox if you PM them to me.

Ok...I'd like to take this a step further...

Any thoughts on dumping my hot wort into my counter flow chiller then whirlpooling it back into the kettle before draining into the fermenter? Basically quickly cooling the wort WHILE whirlpooling... What are my downsides? I can chill 5 gallons from 200+ to 70 in about 5 minutes with my CFC...I'm just tired of all the trub going into the fermenter. I've read all the threads about whirlpooling with an immersion chiller, but I haven't found much on whirlpooling with the counter-flow.

I have done it with my chillzilla, it works, just takes longer because you have the heat of the vessel to chill. I gave up on it since I have elements in my keggle and never got a cone after whirlpooling and it takes more time.
