You will not get the wort boiling by running hot water through the chiller. You will need
something hotter that boiling water, like super heated steam or oil. The water in the chiller
will be 100°C an...

after a doze...

I have not used it yet. The ArdBir manual has some guidelines for the PID. From what i

You can go with only boiling, but you never know what can resist the boil.
