I've used a block of boiled water to cool the wort before. It did work well. I forgot to freeze some water this time. Didn't think of it until the morning of brew day, which is too late. I'll do it again the next time before buying a chiller.
I'll start looking around for a good burner and a 30L pot. I think that is the way to go. I can move to a full boil instead of using so much top up water.
