Next plan is to put together my stir motor with homade prop to aid in cooling.

Also - This triple cooler is no bigger than my double was, inside, I used a big spoon with it and the spoon created plenty of cooling/whirling to move the wort around and help cool very quickly.

But to your point it will be tight stirring with all that copper.

thanks Kevin

With the efficiency he is going to get with that thing he won't need to ! There will be so much convection going on, it will be turbulent in there.
That's the way to man
Obviously the cooler has to be at the top of the brew ! Not sat on the bottom.

I fired it up tonight.
It went from boiling to 58F in 8 minutes, with 12.5 gallons of water.
Boiling to 150 in a minute.
The supply water was 53.
Temps measured were from the PID, below the false bottom, below the chiller as shown in the pics.
It worked very well...better than I expected.
I stirred the water with a big spoon in the center and rocked the chiller a bit off and on through the 8 minutes.

Default update ...

Hi All,
Another update, tested with actual wort this time.

It was a 6.5 gallon batch but still with impressive results.
With some quick change over cam lock hoses I can go from tap water to recirculated ice water and get down to Lager temps in minutes.

It got this batch to 44 with no effort.
To say this works well would be an understatement.

thanks Kevin
