Haven't used it yet, looks like I'll need several items for tubing and fittings. Having a hard time finding these on site or the catalog. Seems like they could be offered as a package

great for gravity feed
I have used this chiller after whirlpool and can easily chill wort to below 70F if i have the water turned on full blast.

I have to slow the flow from my pump way down and it still doesn't quite cool the wort. Usually 78 degrees is the best I can get it. I am not totally sold on this brand.

Best Chiller for the Money
I have had this one for about 5 years now and its been great. It's hard to clean like any plate chiller, but I have never had an infection or off flavor yet. I did however leave it sit without back-flushing, so I bought another one figuring 5yrs is enough. I also have a Blichmann plate which is equally good, but this one performs just as good as that for half the price.

Chiller works well. Great deal if you buy it when Midwest has a 20% off sale. I would recommend it for small batches.

Faster than my old immersion chiller
This thing easily bested my old home made 25' immersion chiller. I use a pump and can get the whole beer chilled to pitching temperature in few minutes. My old chiller would take half an hour.

Using a pump I can get my wort to just 5 degrees above the water temperature. That means I'm done in 5 minutes instead of 30 with my old IC.

better than my immersion chiller
This si good value for a chiller provided you have a pump. In winter when my ground water is really cold I can cool a 5 gallon batch in a few minutes. Then I swap hoses and flush it out so its good for next time.

I'm happy with the results
Given it's size I was skeptical it would work but it does cool the wort to 5 degrees above the water temperature. For summer use I recirculate for a few minutes to get the temperature down, then connect a pre-chiller sitting in cold water and run it again and I get 68 degree wort - perfect.
