In the mail came our wort chiller! Haha, this device is used to cool our boiling wort (beer before yeast is added), down to about 70F. The purpose behind this is so that no infection gets in the wort, and also to aerate the wort properly. Anyway - what "R" and I were usually doing was dropping our pot inside a bath of ice water. That works, for the most part, but it takes a long time. During that time, our beer looses some of its aroma and flavor. This bad boy speeds that process up!
"R" wanted to name him Leonard...lol - whatever!
