How often do you do this lab? How about a large car-camping size ice chest.
Fill it with bags of ice from the grocery store and run water over it. Get
the ice water out through the drain hole. And you could still use it for
camping the rest of the year.

You might want ot consider the energy/power it takes to cool the water.
Assuming you start at room temperature 6 or 7 gallons of water will require
something around 3kw at 100% efficencey to cool in fifteen minutes. This is
way beyond the capabiiites of a standard refrigerator. Hope I got the math
right or abuse is sure to follow : )
