Thanks Denny, I got the king cobra and it works like a dream. The hydra would be good if I was doing 5 gallon batches in my 10 gallon kettle (which I don't have). I have been really happy with my purchase and did not need to special order or customize to get what I needed. Now I am doing a 10 gallon batch this weekend, so the hydra would likely have been better, but I'm confident the cobra will get the job done faster than my old 25' basic IC

To continue, the hydra would have coils above the wort for most of my batches in the 15G, but the king cobra is too wide for the smaller kettle. I opted for the better chiller in my larger kettle (but big enough for a full boil with no concerns), but ymmv.

My set up is not quite right fir the hydra, lots of 5 gallon batches in a 15 gallon kettle, so I bought Jaded's King Cobra which is a similar set up just a lower profile.  My older 25' chiller has been relegated to smaller batches in my 8.5 gallon kettle. The Jaded product chills my wort so fast, I had a hard time doing a whirlpool at 170 for my IPA in January, had to turn the burner back on. When I have paid attention, and likely caused some HSA,  it has cooled my batches to under 100 in less than 10 minutes from boiling. Jaded highly recommended by me!

Good info for whenever I get to my first kolsch brew, hopefully late winter/early spring

Well done Erik. Just make sure that you and they understand all state laws regarding your brewing the beer, them taking it out of state, and possibly pouring it at a public event. Not trying to be a buzzkill, just dont want anyone in trouble with the law either. Different laws for different states, just CYA.

Still, think I'd like to have a beer in Italy,  glad the rest of the trip seemed great

Sorry it did not turn out to match what you wanted, but welcome back!

Plan is for 10 gallons of saison. Been talking about it for months and it's getting awfully late in the season, but am sure it will be great for fall as well. 5 gallons will get blackberries and 5 will get some fresh picked lemon balm in secondary.  Both will get a 2-1 dose of 3724 to 3711. Fingers crossed, last year's batch with raspberries caught an infection (thinking it was the short freeze for the berries) it's still getting better slowly, but I was advised by Siamese Moose to let it sit until October  (I've had 2 or 3 since he tried it last November) Blackberries have been frozen for over a month. Got a couple interested parties coming over to watch/help out on brewday

The answer is to open a brewery and hire young 20 year old studs to do all the hard work for you! :)
Fantastic plan! I like it

I just picked up a can of the 3711 variant,  can't recall the name off the top of my head, to use in my saison next weekend. Fingers crossed. It looks like my LHBS is going to stock Imperial for Wyeast whenever possible, they still had what looked to be the full lineup of WL, and some Wyeast, including 3724 (said Imperial did not have that Dupont isolate yet) we will see how it goes
