Whether you're brewing with extract or all-grain, bringing down the temperature of the wort quickly in order to pitch the yeast is an essential step in homebrewing. Lowering the temperature quickly reduces chances of contaminating your beer with wild yeasts and bacteria, and will reduce the levels of DMS (dimethyl sulfide) that can ruin a beer's aroma. A quick chilling of the wort will also improve clarity in the final product. Having the garden hose adapters hooked directly up to the wort chiller gives you the ability to quickly and easily hook up your desired hose, this means that you have far more freedom as to what hose to use further expanding your options.
When using an immersion chiller there's no unnecessary transferring to different containers, and there's no need to dilute the wort with cold water. Just drop the immersion chiller in to the brew pot. The preferred method of sanitation is to make sure it is clean to the eye and submerge the coil portion of the chiller in to the wort during the last 15 minutes of the boil, this will kill any wild yeasts or unsanitary pests that might be introduced. Once the brew pot is taken off the boil, you can begin cooling immediately by hooking up the line and turning on the water.
