ZChillers are made in the US by Packless Industries located in Waco, Texas.
ZChillers are double tube counter flow wort chillers. The interior tubing is a Spiral Star Design. This spiraling increases the surface area of copper that’s in contact with your wort. It also increases turbulence. More movement across more surface area means your wort chills quickly.

Ice baths can take forever and waste precious time that leaves your wort exposed to outside bacteria, yeast, and other bugs (even with the kettle lid on). This lengthy period can also leave proteins, hop material, and tannins immersed in your wort, which clouds your finished product and can potentially leave fusel alcohol, DMS, and sulfur. Achieving a good cold break is vital for yeast health and beer clarity, because the rapid change in temperature makes these proteins and other undesirables coagulate and flocculate to the bottom of your kettle.
This is why Homebrew Supply is proud to feature the ZChiller line of Counterflow Wort Chillers! This 154″ long copper chiller may seem small compared to other counterflow chillers on the market, but it sure does pack a punch. Other immersion and counterflow wort chillers can be counterproductive due to the small size of the piping, which can cause buildup of hop material, bacteria, and proteins. Over time, this buildup can cause spoilage in future batches, potentially costing hundreds of dollars in wasted beer. Not with the ZChiller! This bad boy features a huge surface area for even more rapid tubing, and will also prevent buildup of undesirable particles.
