Sorry about the poor Pauly Shore reference.
Today I scored 50' of 3/8 copper for 20$. (it's good to be in HVAC) I'm tossing around the idea of a different chiller design. Most all of us have or have used a typical chiller, stacked. I got to thinking, where does heat travel? Up. So, why not make a chiller more in the design of a spiral, like a stove element. It would lay just below the top few inches of hot wort. As the is cooled, the heat from the lower part of the kettle will rise, while the cooled wort on top falls. Am I onto something? Anyone else try this?
Talk amongst yourselves. I'll give you a topic.... Chiller design.
