Last night for sh!ts and grins I watched Jim Koch's (founder of Sam Adam's) tutorial on how to homebrew. That is exactly how he chilled his wort. He cut the plastic water bottles off of two frozen gallons and dumped his hot wort on top of that.
I used to just take cold water straight out of the tap. You're going to top it off anyway, right?
