Has anybody used a suitable Kreyer Chilly to cool the wort completely prior to transfer to FV from a BM200L. Or, if finishing cooling with a plate HX what make and where did you source the 1" bsp fittings?

We use tap water through the BM jacket to get temperature down to about 80°, then run through a Kreyer Superchanger 500 (Using BM pump) on pass to the FV which brings down to around 19°(again tap water running against it). Heat exchanger is around £1500 ex VAT from Vigo. (I work at Vigo and this is on our microbrewery setup).
