How long did it take you to make that thing?!? Awesome job, it looks very well thought out. I'd be interested in hearing how quickly it manages to chill your brew.

Pics of mad things I have built...do you really want to go there?

Try this then. Watch out for the broadside skid, driving no hands and going backwards. the small model is showing what it would look like if I built a fairing

Ok hands up, it's off topic! On topic only brings up my Peristaltic pump so far! See the progress so far in the DIY section...The Mk2 version is a few weeks away from completion.

That is probably the best chiller I have ever seen. You could also sell those at the local art fair.

It displaces about 1 Imperial gallon. I cannot remember if I calculated that for all 8 coils or just the 6 I am using at the moment. but what the heck....

I have two of these brewpots and my thinking at the moment is that if I put a suitable seal the lid, after the boil has cooled and the cold break material has settled, I can transfer the wort to the second brewpot and pop the coil on to that pot and use the coil to keep the fermentation temperature in check. I will just need a container of water with a thermosat and heater and pump that water through the coil as it will be months before I will be needing to cool a fermentation. It's either that, or faff about making a bloody great insulated container etc

Umm, dude...

That is the most insane IC I have ever seen. I know people like their counter flow chillers and plate chillers but I think you just win. The idea is kick ass, and the execution looks flawless. If I were you I would hang that thing up as a piece of art in my house whenever I wasn't using it.

You just took the immersion chiller to a whole new level. Pat yourself on the back (I I can't reach). I am impressed.

I've heard that the prechiller is much smaller and only 75 feet with 4 coils. You know... No big deal.
