Copper Counterflow Wort Chiller from MoreBeer

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

You may have a hard time finding a more affordable counter flow wort chiller. For the homebrewer on a budget, these heat exchangers are one the fastest ways to chill wort. Similar in efficiency to the Chillout plate chiller, but much easier to clean. Plate chillers have the disadvantage of getting gunked up in their small crevasses due to trapped hop material. This unit, on the other hand, can be easily and effectively flushed after use.

Copper is a great conductor of heat, making it more efficient than a stainless chiller of similar design. These units are 9″ in diameter and about 7″ high. The input and output are approximately 3/8″ outer diameter (9.5 mm). They can be used with gravity, but we recommend using a pump.

Check out the video below to learn how to set up the chiller with Duotight fittings (DUO115 & DUO116) that will allow you to attach Camlock, QD, or garden hose fittings to the inputs and outputs, and enable you to control the flow rate at the water inlet.

​Fittings not included.

MoreBeer 25′ Copper Immersion Wort Chiller – $64.99 + Free Ship Eligible, Limited Availability

Immersion Wort Chiller - 25 ft. x 3/8 in. WC20

25′ Immersion Wort Chiller from MoreBeer

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

In a traditional wort chiller, the coils rest on the bottom of the pot and the hot wort on top takes a very long time to reach them, making the entire process time consuming and inefficient. Our original, simple innovation for the Immersion Wort Chiller from MoreBeer! is to move the coils right to the top where the majority of the heat is. This promises to give you the fastest heat exchange possible, to cool your wort down more efficiently and to get your brew into the fermenter as quickly and cleanly as possible. There is also no need to stir during chilling which reduces contamination and allows your trub and spent hops to settle to the bottom of your kettle.

Some other key differences of our wort chillers. We solder the copper tubes together at the top of the chiller, out of wort, so that the whole unit retains its shape. Other chillers use hose clamps which is a less permanent, but much cheaper, solution. The connection feeds on our chillers our bent out down at an angle so that if there is any dripping at the copper/vinyl connection point it drips out of the kettle and not back into your beer. Also works perfect with a kettle that features a notched lid. Made in the USA in our metal shop.

Stats

  • 25 feet of 3/8 inch copper tubing
  • 8 feet of vinyl tubing at both the in and the out
  • Female garden hose fitting is included for easy adaptation to a garden hose.
  • 10″ diameter, 8″ to the top coil, 15″ to the bend to go over the lip of the kettle.
