Pros: Cool's amazingly quick. From boiling to pitching as fast as my pump will push the wort through
Cons: Always concerned about sanitation because I can't see inside. No problems with infection to date though.
Recommended? YesCool's amazingly quick. From boiling to pitching as fast as my pump will push the wort thru. Always concerned about sanitation because I can't see inside. No problems with infection to date though. I run boiling water thru after brewing followed by some starsan and let it set with starsan until next brew.

Pros: small and works great
Cons: have to run the wort slow flow rate to get to 70F temps using Michigan tap water.
Recommended? YesI bought this since my IC didn't sit flat in my BK due to dip tube. Also don't have to worry about water dripping into my BK. I have used this product for about 5 brews and I also use a hop bag and bazooka screen in my BK. I still reverse flush this and back at 350 after each use. I have had no issues with clogging but wish I could run higher flow rate to get wort to pitching temps.

Pros: Chills wort to just under 70F in no time, pretty easy clean up
Cons: Went with the smallest one available, probably could have gone bigger
Recommended? YesI am very pleased with this product! It chilled my boiling wort down to just under 70F in no time, even with the valve opened the whole way. From reviews, I almost expected it to need to flow slower to chill correctly but from my moderate-temperature tap water it works wonderfully.

Pros: Works great, run slow or fast or on ice to get perfect temp. Run in reverse to clean.
Cons: careful on the threading. It will cut you deep.
Recommended? YesGreat addition to my AG setup. Makes cooling and transfer to the carboy easy.
Pros: Fast, easy to use. Easy to clean and sanitize
Cons: Needed to buy a hose to hose adaptor for it since all connections are male.
Recommended? YesChilled 10 gallons of boiling wort to 68º in about 8 min on a gravity feed through 1/2" hose with the spigot wide open. Simply the best thing I have bought for my home brewing. Chilling the wort used to be a chore now it is Oh so easy.. Boil it and all hoses prior to chilling the wort for sanitation, I use 1/2" ID silicone hose so the wort really flows fast.. I also have 51º well water all year round. Absolutely awesome.. I want to brew more just because I have it..
