The original idea was to use a water feature pump from "the orange home improvement store," and have an infinite cold flow from a bucket. This works pretty well, too.
The output water was never hot, btw- even at the beginning of the chill. I could not believe it.
Considering the digital temps I took when I turned it on, I think I was showing north of 300,000 BTUs at prime efficiency (my WAG is the first 80 degrees). That's almost 10 horsepower!
Since the buddies that bought me the kit have a 68 degree cellar in their house, the beer is there. I'll bring a camera next visit to the beer (HA) and post details.
