Im currently running 15 gal batches in a 3 pot set-up chilling with 3-3/8" immersion chillers. I need to speed the chill process up. Ive considered going with additional 50' 1/2" immersions or going single pot and plate chiller method.

What are the pitfalls of the plate chiller system compared to immersion chillers?
