The problem is that plastic doesn't conduct well, but it's still a legit procedure.

Much better to chill it down in the brew kettle and then transfer to your fermenter. If your kettle fits in your sink, that's a great place to chill it at. I have a big double sink so I can fill one side with cold water and put the kettle in and stir and when that water gets warm, I fill the other side and transfer it over. Half a dozen trips and it's cooled to a point that my fridge-cold topup water will take it the rest of the way. When I brewed last Sunday, it hit exactly 63F when I hit my full volume after the top up. Sweeeet!

I just brewed my 2nd batch and used my home made wort chiller, that i made for 30 bucks. It was super easy to make, and worked like a charm!

I looked at some of the home made wort chillers and I think I'll make one before my next batch. I guess I was just looking for an quick fix since I didnt think ahead. Thanks for the feedback and advice

It's important, so if your going to continue this hobby might as well get it out of the way. I progressed rather fast (in terms of buying equipment) because I knew I was going to do this my entire life.
