That is correct.

I do have a kitchen sink, but I don't have a screwing aparatus.

It looks like this:

Thanks for all of the ideas, but I just had another thought. Could I remove my shower head and connect a hose? I believe the pipe that the shower head connects to is threaded.

I may have to settle for the pump and bucket idea, but I would like to avoid buying a pump if I don't have to.

You can always adopt.

What about the bathroom sick? Does that have a "regular" thread?

Example:
http://www.shop.com/op/~5002050_FAUC...143?sourceid=3

This is sold in HW stores everywhere.
ETA:
Oops sprayer. Got it.

I think that the sprayer face threads off FWIW but,

Go to Ace or TrueValue. Explain that you need to go from a male sprayer to hose adapter.
It may take 2 or 3 adapters, but it'll work.

Any chance you have a URL for that system? I would be very interested to see it. I would like to rig up something for stirring my wort as it cools so that I get maximum efficiency with the immersion chiller.

Are you sure? That looks almost exactly like what I have. Mine is also Moen. Check again, it may detach.

It definately should detach just below the handle, thats how they are installed and the tube is fed through the neck.

For your space constraints, I think someone else here had the best idea. Get a 5 gallon paint bucket and fill it mostly with ice, along with enough water cover the ice. Get some kind of immersible pump (like an aquarium pump) that you can attach to one of the tubes on your immersion chiller. Simply pump this water though the immersion chiller and back into the bucket. When your ice melts and the water in the bucket isn't cold enough to do much good, re-fill it with ice and water and resume. This would be a whole lot faster than just running tap water through the immersion chiller.

If you run plain tap water through for the first 5 minutes without recirculating back into the bucket, THEN throw the ice in, you won't have to fill the bucket with ice twice. Tap temp is so much lower than 200F that you get really fast cooling without wasting ice. It's when the wort is around a 100F that you start slowing the cooling process with tap. Cue the ice.

Seconded. I have 85°F tap water in the summer an this technique is still effective.
