    An hour?! You weren't using it right. I regularly chill 12 gallons of wort in 8-12 minutes
    (depending on groundwater temp) with my IC using the proper techniques:1. Source water on full

    Have you already committed to using a plate chiller? I was convinced it was the way to go, then

    I'm facing the same thing. BrewSmith predicted that I needed a mid-160's HLT temp to hit my
