comment May be too much carbonation on the way
@mdma I wasn't aware that this site required me to 'accept' answers, but per your request, I have gone to my threads and done so.

comment May be too much carbonation on the way
@brewchez, yeah it was a stretch. Added 12oz pureed fresh figs to the last 5 minutes of the boil. Would have probably made more sense to add to the secondary, particularly since the style is sometimes served with a fruit syrup. The final product is a bit cidery, but very drinkable and very interesting. Going to take some to my homebrew meeting this sunday and get some non-biased reviews....

comment Do I truly need a wort chiller?
@ Jason V, the Shirron I have can probably do the same in about 10 minutes, but I have only used it once. Not sure if it is TOTALLY worth it based on cleaning of the shirron, hooking up hoses, march pump issues, etc. I like to do everything possible to maximize 'time spent brewing:beer made' ratio, but can't tell any taste benefit from more rapid cooling. @ brewchez, are you actually running your wort through the IC submersed in a water bath (like a pre-chiller), or cold water through it?
