    Got this tip from one of the BeerSmith podcasts and thought it might be useful for others.

    To cool a sample quickly put it in a metal cocktail shaker and put that inside a bowl of water.

    For a small sample to measure mash pH I cooled from 69C to 20C in ~15 seconds. A larger sample from the boil for a hydrometer reading doesn't take long either, especially if there's an ice block in the cooling water and the cocktail shaker cooled first.
