In HOMEBREW Digest #421, Chris Shenton noted that in using his
immersion wort chiller:

"The water initially absorbed so much heat from the near boiling wort that
"it came out boiling at first ...
"I was trying to think of what I could do with 5-10 gallons of
"nearly-boiling water and all I could thing of was to make a hell of a lot
"of tea.

I use mine to clean & sterilize everything I'm going to use in the
rest of the brewing process. I pile all the equipment into the
lauter tun, add bleach, and let the hot water fill it up. By the
time it's full (7 gallons), the water coming out of the chiller
isn't so hot any more. After letting everything in the tun soak a
sufficient time, I drain the still-hot water from the tun to the
carboy. I have a week well and we're in our fourth consecutive
drought year, so multiple uses for water is rather imperative ...
