Which chiller?

A wort chiller, we’d argue, should be filed under 'essential'. Here's a quick primer

It markedly improves your beer and lessens the chance of infection. There are several ways to cool your wort. An ice bath is the simplest way to cool wort, but also takes the longest and can’t be used with an electric kettle. For the price, a copper or stainless steel coiled immersion wort chiller is the best value for money. Simply hook one end up to a tap, immerse in the wort (to sterilise), and leave to run for half an hour or so. Plate and counterflow chillers are quicker, but more expensive and you usually need a pump.
