My tap water gets my wort down to 68 in 15 minutes, after that I seal it up and place it in the cooling chamber until it is about 55F then pitch. It usually takes about 6 hours or so in the chamber to cool down.

I just made one the other night.. Pics posted in the "Equip. / Sani." topic on the forum. I plan on using it in a different configuration than pictured. I have a small fountain pump I already had around here that will be submerged in a sink with water and ice (they sell for about $20.00 at Lowes), a transmission radiator that I plan on using after the pump for additional cooling in the same sink, then into the coil which I bought the pipe for at Lowe's for about $23.00... Then I am going to flow the hot into the other sink or out the window. As it sits now it cools 3 gal. of water from a boil down to 80* in about 17 minutes... I'm expecting much more rapid chilling once I reconfigure and add the ice.

Keep in mind that in all I have about $45.00 worth of materials here (not including the Trans. cooler), you can buy one already set up,for about the same....
