With all of this talk on wort chillers, don't forget the utmost in
simplicity. For small (12 qt.) brewpots I just put the sucker
in a sink of cold water and cool it in about 5 minutes.

Yes, this is potentially a little hard on the pot, so I wouldn't
necessarily try it on something expensive. But then again, it's not
like you're cooling boiling oil (or candy) and is it really any worse
than pouring boiling liquid into a cool stockpot?
