I get mine down in about 30 minutes with an ice bath. I do partial boil of about 2.5 galons, then top it off with sterile water.
i so a 3 step ice bath.
1: 10 minutes with just cold tap water
2: 10 minutes with cold tap water and a couple handfulls of ice
3: ~10 minutes with cold tap water and all the ice my icemaker has left
I have concidered an imersian cooler, but will probably not get one unless i change out about half of my equipment and do 5galon boils.
