I have a 100 ft. 3/8 copper immersion chiller that I built. Cools the wort in 10 mins flat, from 210 to 60 degrees. Easy to clean, easy to use. But I think preference depends solely on what you like. Each has its pros and cons.

Is it just me or is anyone else pleased there's a tad bit more alcohol than you planned in a beer? I've never considered watering down(with the resultant time commitment), just worked harder to hit my numbers.I do get excited when my beer is stronger than expected too. Most of the beers I drink are big beers anyway. I drink'em slow, so getting too drunk is usually not an issue... usually!
Congrats on the success! In addition to the question about what your next beer is...the other big question is what's going to be your next toy for the brew system?I think I'm gonna build a brew bench, or buy a conical fermenter, haven't decided yet.
ok, but if you haven't had it, try their Abt 12....awesome beer.+1 I truly love the ABT 12, definitely one of my all time faves.
I'm going to try an abbey, or maybe the biere de garde featured on the home page here.Thanks and thanksThat's great, congratulationsThanks, Tom, and congratulations to you on being elected to the governing commitee! I also liked your contribution to the gadgets edition of Zymurgy...
But now the question is, what are you doing for your next batch?
Cool! Great style choice on first all-grain.Thanks, I really love a good belgian. Been drinking them for years, it's what truly started me in homebrewing. I'm super stoked my first came out so well!

Do you have a stir plate?I kind of rather enjoy the bottling process. Turn on some good tunes (loud as you can), pour a glass or three of your favorite brew, and just think of how good it's all gonna taste afterwards! For me, it's a labor of love.
There was a recent article I think in BYO about apartment all-grain brewing. I'll look it up and get back to you.
