Yeah I was just asking if anyone else has got to try one. They are truly incredible.

To clarify, the one in the pic above belongs to my friend/brew partner. We have only got to use it a couple of times. We were doing the traditional ice bath that took an hour before we upgraded. I guess thats why I think so highly of it. I'm sure there are plenty of people that have one.

That barefoot guy!!! Yeah I have a couple friends from my homebrew club that have one and they both like it. Only complaint they had was that hops would get clogged in it. I think they figured out a fix to that, but not sure what it was.

Yep, he is the barefoot guy.
We were using hop pellets so we didn't have any issues with it getting clogged. But I'm sure if we were to use whole leaf hops it might be a problem.

Yeah gravity works just fine and it still only takes five to ten minutes to chill a 6 gallon batch.
