Fill it with PBW and let it soak for a while. Drain and refill. If the PBW water keeps coming out with a tint of green keep doing it. The only other thing that could help was if you could run some kind of brush through the chiller to aid in cleaning.

Spices

Next batch I plan on doing the spices will go in vodka for an extract. Then adding it before bottling or kegging. This will give me more flavor control. Also I think less hops.

Thanks Bigdog. I have a pretty large back ground in fab work. I wish my beer back ground was as deep but time is on my side. This was a true build of passion for me. In the end it makes beer too what a great deal for me.
