Welcome to the forum, Kyle! There are great brewers who can answer your questions and you can also search a lot of topics that have been pretty well settled by discussion.
Denny - with using a WIC do you find that the wort is aerated slightly by the whirlpooling against the immersion chiller? With mine I get a slight burp as I start it, from air in the hoses, then it is just mixing wort. That can't be much of a problem, right?
