In this season at it's coldest my tap is 86F. That's the summer for ya! But I cooled 6 gallons last evening to 62 in 35 minutes total with an ice-water recirc after the wort hit 88. It went into the fermenteezer.
A few more minutes with the ice-recirc and the wort would have been at lager pitching temps.
