Default Thermal Conductivity of Wort or some other similar 1.060 sugar solution?

I'm doing a wort chiller project and calculations are stalled out due to an inability to find something I can use for thermal conductivity of the unfermented wort. Anybody have a guess?

I've done lots of internet searching but no luck thus far. Thanks.

I'd just multiply the thermal conductivity of water by 1.060. This is the ratio of their densities, and I'd guess that there is a very close relationship.

That's a pretty good thought. Thanks.
