We just take the boil pot and put it in ice with a wort chiller. We don't have a separate chill pot. I'll definitely try the coffee filter approach and see how it goes.

Sorry for being MIA. Glad to know it won't matter too much as long as we're careful in extracting the beer. We have it fermenting in a carboy right now and plan on doing a siphon for our bottling. ...

For those who made their own mash tun out of a cooler, what type of cooler did you use to maintain the temperature best? I bought a generic Coleman and in the middle of doing a test but it doesn't...

I think I'll be fine with the vinyl tubing I found. It's similar to the same stuff I've found in numerous DIY plans for a mash tun. If it wears over time, I'll replace it with something different. ...
