Use a wort chiller to save time
Submitted by: Rob on 06 May 02

Invest in a wort chiller, which can easily cut the wort cooling process in half. There are mainly two types of wort chillers... (1) Immersion wort chiller and (2) Counter-flow wort chiller. The immersion wort chiller is a coil of copper tubing that you submerge into your hot wort and run cool water thru. The water traveling thru the tubing absorbs the heat from your wort. The counter-flow wort chiller cools your wort as it travels to your fermentation vessel. Cold water travels against the hot wort and absorbs the heat out of it. It is usually two tubes, one inside the other.
