I hear ya, brother! Weather was brilliant today here so I did two batches, took them both from boiling to 65F in under 10 minutes with my trusty well water and lowly 50' IC.

Otoh, even in the dead of August I can drop a batch to pitching temps in under 14 minutes. A bedrock well running in the fifties year 'round is a wonderful thing

Cheers!

Did you know that the water temperature out of the ground equals the areas average temperature for the year. Tidbit of knowledge.
