Default chiller-prechiller

I have two immersionchillers.
3/8" 25' and 1/2" 50'

Water from faucet to prechiller to chiller to drain.

One of these will go in an ice bucket, and the other in the kettle.

Which way would you do it?

I'd put the 1/2" in the kettle and run with tap water until you get the wort to "X" degrees and then put the 3/8" into a bucket or cooler with ice and connect it inline ahead of the 1/2". With a sump pump you could recirc the water.

***********1. Enforce rules only against their foes (i.e., anyone who does not suck up to them) while exempting their friends from similar or worse behavior.

2. Silently boot someone and then proceed to trash talk the person as if the person was still there with an opportunity to respond.

3. Boot someone and then start a thread for the sole purpose of boasting about having removed the person, so as to bask in the praise of sychophantic members applauding the moderator's bold action.

4. If a person is being stalked or trolled, scold, warn and threaten both the victim and the perpetrator to stop it. If the victim protests, boot the victim for having defied the moderator's authority. Add injury to insult by allowing the troll or stalker to stay because the stalker or troll didn't talk back to the moderator.

5. If the moderator loses an argument to another member, selectively delete the member's comments so that the thread no longer makes any sense.

6. Selectively enforce the tribe's rules only against newcomers, newbies or people who are not friend with the moderator.

7. Speak about their actions as moderator in the passive voice, use the royal we, and otherwise take on a haughty, authoritarian tone. I mean, dude, you're just a moderator. ***************
