Awesome! I made my wife get me one for my birthday this past January. I love it! I got the 22.5" one with a Cajun Bandit stainless steel door and pimp kit along with the BBQ Guru DigiQ. I don't know if I'll ever use my kitchen again!

I honestly didn't care for my plate chiller. Too hard to sanitize and clean. And the plate chiller won't chill your wort cooler than your summer ground water temp.
IC is my suggestion. Stress free sanitization. Hose off, drop in boil last 20 minutes. WP with a spoon or pump and you can get down to 80-90 degrees pretty quickly during hot summer month. Drop in temp controlled fridge or freezer or give ice water bath to drop to pitching temps.
I finally joined after debating over a year and finally said screw it, this is what I love, this is my passion, and I'm going to be doing it for a lifetime; so I'll join for a lifetime. I'll even add my best friend, wife, and brother to the list, so we can all go out the the local Iron Hill and save a few bucks every time. It's always a good time, and now I have more incentive to go out for a few new craft beers. Maybe I'll find a little inspiration for what the next batch will be. This is a good cause and I stand for it.
