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?
