I bottle. I no-chill. My beer is clear. No claims about any long term stability made, but so far, so good.

(Well, I keg as well, but I bottle about 2/3's of my batches)

I put my cube in the corner where it has direct cold wall contact on 2 sides - I get frost on the walls. My cooler will only run for so long before kicking off, so if the temp in my basement is higher, it takes longer - or that's my working theory.

18 hours is usually how long I wait - just because I usually finish up mid day on brew day and then pitch the next morning.

Reason: typos

Hello Pol. Bumping an old thread.

I followed this a while back. Just looking at US plastics today. I am considering getting a couple of Winpaks.

Are you still doing the no chill method for every batch?

Jason,
It appears Pol has a chiller on his new rig.

I'm still doing mine the no-chill way. I do like it.

I am still no chilling (though I have not brewed in about 4-5 months while I have been selling and building my rigs and such)

I have a chiller on my new rig, but I also had a chiller on my old rig... sometimes I use it, sometimes I dont

I need to find a smaller vessel to try this with. I want to start brewing 2.5 gallon batches and during the winter it will be so easy to do this. Could probably pitch in a couple of hours.
