Hey,
I have been brewing for About a year and started looking at chillers(I am getting tired of ice baths). I found this[IMG]s1070.photobucket.com/albums/u489/chevyguy1231/?action=view&current=KGrHqJHJBE9sc5B8rBPYLJdsmLQ60 _12.jpg[/IMG]? on ebay and wanted to know if anyone has used one of these before?

Thanks

Sorry the image did not show up, I originally tried to post the auction but that would not show up. I then tried to save it to photobucket and have the image show up but that didn't work (obviously). anyway, if you go to ebay and type in "wort chiller" there are less than 100 results. you will know it when you see it.

thanks again...

just looks like a fancy IC to me. I can't see that it would boost efficiency that much.

Plus I don't use a square BK

Reason: Can't Spell

Yeah, looks like a different configuration on a traditional immersion chiller. Maybe it gives you a little more practical surface area, since less of the chiller tube is right next to other sections of the chiller tube, and instead exposed directly to the wort itself?

But I'm with NewBrew2 - without knowing the actual dimensions of the thing, there's no way to know for sure if it's going to actually fit into your brew kettle!

Description says 10" corner to corner. Pretty small. Would work with hose pressure but definitely not for recirc.

Looks like it'd be pretty much impossible to get a whirlpool going with that in your kettle.

I would think it would be more efficient as there's certainly no laminar flow inside there so all the water would be absorbing heat.
