Jacuzzi Jet Ice Bath Chiller!

I realize that I haven't posted for quite awhile, so I thought I would post a short brewing video I took while brewing the split batch Belgian Dubbel/ Pale ale. I've read that a picture is worth a thousand words, so a video should make up for the two months since I last posted.

I chilled the dubbel which was the bigger part of the split batch with my immersion chiller.  But for the smaller part, the pale ale, I decided to do an ice bath.  Not just any ice bath, but a jacuzzi ice bath.  Yes, I filled the jacuzzi tub with ice water and turned on the jets.  I wouldn't suggest doing this while SWMBO (She Who Must Be Obeyed) is home:
