I do mill in the basement not far from where the barrel would be stored. It isn't a problem to mill outside in the summer at least.

I am willing to bet it's your crush. Take a picture of it next time and post it here to confirm.

It is 3/8". I am also recirculating the wort while running the chiller. This helps out a lot. Letting your chiller just sit there without the wort moving (even a simple stirring would help A LOT)...
