Thank you for converting
So your tap water is 77F and cooled that quickly? Surprising.
That's a great price to build a chiller like that, congrats.
Looks like the piping is a thicker gauge and has a large contact area with the wort, very nice!

OP: 10C is cold. At that temp though I am surprised to hear of a 5 minute cool if you're talking about a full 5 gallons of wort. I did it in about 21 minutes and water was 42F. Though your chiller may just be better built.

Jesus... that's some weird dyslexia I got going on, but that makes much more sense. Either way, congrats on a kick-ass chiller!

Mine chills in about 30 minutes and my tap water is mid-fifites. What temperature are you chilling it to? After 5 minutes I'm only down in the low 100's.

I have a 50' 5/8 whirlpool chiller and I can hit 6 min to chill a 5 gallon batch but that's using slush water and a sump pump, pretty sure the OPs numbers a stretched a little. although guess it is never stated what it is chilled to. I chill to 60 - 65f
