    Was thinking of getting a maxi shelf cooler to cool casks and hook up to my angram.

    Would hooking it up to an immersion chiller when brewing be asking too much of it????

    So you wanna pump ice water from your Maxi (esky) through an Imersion chiller to chill your brew on brew day?
    Or use a pre chiller type setup?

    I just use a cheap submersible aquarium pump in an ice chest to circulate cold water through my chiller.

    Ditto that. 200 GPM is about the minimum size I can imagine would be effective.
