Firstly, please forgive me if this is too much of a newbie question.
I am just getting into brewing at home, the first attempts have gone smoothly, with the only annoying or difficult bit of the process being waiting for over five gallons (six US gallons) of wort to cool down to a reasonable pitching temperature. Current method has been plonking my brewing stockpot in the bath. As such I have been eyeing up immersion chillers at the nearest brewing shop (especially with Christmas on the way!).
The one thing I'm a bit vague on with the immersion chillers is how you attach them all up to water supplies and such, i.e. what you would need to set up beyond the end of the chiller pipe itself!
Any tips for the best methods of getting water circulating through my (as yet unbought) chiller would be greatly appreciated.
Oh yep, being a poor student living in a shared rented house, methods can't involve (a) Big garage spaces, (b) Excessive amounts of money or (c) Engineering works to fixtures or fittings. I only say that as I know some people like to get really
serious about their brewing.
