My wort chiller setup

Like many people I needed a way to connect my wort chiller to an indoor kitchen sink. With help from a friendly chap at Lowes I bought the parts to do a quick release attachment for the tap so I could easily plug the wort chiller in when it was time to use.

A close up of the madness

The white plastic part in the middle is the quick release. It lets me unhook the chiller without having to unscrew anything. I have found the quick release to be very convenient. I later tried to improve the setup by replacing the rubber connector that clamps onto the aerator with a kitchen tap to garden hose adapter but it ended up leaking quite a bit. While it may look a bit crazy the current setup works well.
