Science! - A little less than a happy high

Science!
Paul stopped by with my spankin' new homemade cooling coil. I'm speechless. Not only was it an amazingly cool thing to do, but when we tested it, it brought water at a full boil down below pitching temperature in no more than five minutes.

For those of you who haven't seen the process, the time spent cooling the wort is unusually long and dull. You set the pot in cold water, pack it with ice, and hope that you won't have to wait more than an hour before you can add the yeast.

Five. Frickin'. Minutes.

I am filled with Deee-Lite!

Current Mood: giddy giddy

That's wicked Awesome. Custom brewing equipment can't be beat...

Considering that the commercial one promised a cooling time of around 30-40 minutes, I'd have to say I agree.

I just need to give it a good boil to clean and sterilize it before we start putting it to good use.

mudguts = Da Man.

Way cool.

BTW, you don't happen to have a double-boiler, do you? I've realized that I lack some potentially-crucial pieces of cooking gear re: making cheese.

I'm not sure. Even if I don't, it's easy enough to rig one using standard household implements.

it gives me the greatest pleasure to see you so full of deee-lite.

the company will be pleased to know their material is put to good use. at least, if i told them, they would :)

Groove is in the heart. ;)

Couldn't you chalk it up to "unexpected benefits?" I mean, it's not all that different from the office supply question, is it?

Magic!

Should it be sufficiently advanced? Absolutely. The big question is at what point magic becomes so profound that it is considered sacred...

I can't wait to have people over, hook it up, and watch as they leap around and grunt excitedly.
