Default Glycol chiller choices?

Could use some help here, I would like to buy a glycol chiller that would be good for up to two 20gal jacketed fermenters. There is not much info out there on these things and need help finding something that would work, cheaper is always nice too

If you want to just buy something off the shelf then look at micromatic. They have glycol line chillers for chilling the long run of beer lines with a glycol circuit. Those chillers will handle a couple small fermenters no problem.

Alternatively, you could get an aquarium chiller in the 3/4hp variety and do the same thing.

Of course, there is the diy variety too and that is probably the cheapest.

Definitely want to just buy something, want it to be nice, compact, and I don't have time right now to build something. I was looking at micromatic
