Did you build the counterflow wort chiller from scratch, or order a kit?
What length did you make?

@DangerisBrewing .. The chiller is done from scratch 25 foot of 3/8 copper tube .
Would be better if it was 50 feet .
I did not go nuts with the cold water when I used it .. I used aprox 15 gallons cold tap water to cool 10 gallons of wort to about 85 F .
fermenter : high gravity fermented Vienna Lager , re-fermenting with abbey ale yeast . kinda experiment .
