ZChiller – Spiral Star Design Counterflow Wort Chillers – Made in the US – $169.99, Save $20 + free shipping

Large ZChillerZChillers 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.

from AIH: “The ZChiller utilizes the enhanced thermal gradients of a counterflow wort chiller with the added benefit of greater surface area for heat transfer. Instead of a simple, cylindrical inner tube, the ZChiller utilizes a unique, convoluted “spiral star” design that enables superior heat transfer out of the wort as well as unparalleled cooling uniformity for consistent cold breaks and record cooling times. The chilling ability matches or exceeds that of plate chillers without the downside of disruptive clogs.”

These advantages result in:

  • Reduced chilling time.
  • More efficient cold break to remove unwanted proteins and particulates from your beer.
  • Cleaner aroma profile because of decrease in DMS production, giving you a more pronounced aroma that you have worked so hard for.
  • Easier cleaning, especially when compared to a plate chiller.

  • This is selling for $189.99
  • Save $20: Adventures in Homebrewing is offering up to $30 off your purchase, depending on your order total.  Get $10 off $80, $20 off $160 and $30 off $240.  No coupon code is required, the discounted amount should be automatically be reflected in your cart before checkout.  Nearly everything qualifies including existing sale items, although their are a few exceptions.  See terms and conditions.
  • Get Free Shipping!  Adventures in Homebrewing is offering free shipping on most orders of $55 or more to addresses in the contiguous US.

Announcing: New Modular Immersion Chiller from Williams Brewing

williamsbrewing.com modular chiller

Modular Immersion Chiller from William’s Brewing

Immersion wort chillers are great in that they are easy to clean and easy to use. However, having the cooling water hoses attached all the time gets to be tiresome, as you have to deal with the chiller with long hoses full of water once you are done cooling a batch. Our new Modular Immersion Chiller solves this problem. No more lugging around a chiller, cleaning it, and storing it with the unwieldy hoses attached.

This 25′ stainless cooling coil features quick disconnect hose fittings, compatible with Melnor and other quick disconnect hose systems. Best of all, because it is easy to connect and disconnect, It can be adapted to a wide variety of purposes including connecting two in series so you can pre chill your cooling tap water in an ice bath in the warmer months before cooling your wort or still head.

For use as a pre chiller in areas with warmer tap water, hook up two units in series with the first chiller in an ice bath, and the second in your wort. Or if distilling, use one Modular Immersion Chiller to pre chill your still head water, connected between your tap water source and a still head with quick disconnect fittings like our items C74 and C75.

Fits most boiling pots, as well as the Mash & Boil, Grainfather, Brewzilla, and Robobrew. It fits ½” interior diameter tubing (not included, see our optional discounted Chiller Tubing Kit). 15½” tall to the inlets and outlets, and the coil is 7¼” wide.

This also works great as a pre chiller for a wort chiller. Just pipe this coil into your cooling water supply line and pipe your wort chiller into the exit. Then place this in a 5 gallon pail full of ice and water, and you can chill wort even in Florida or Hawaii on a hot day.

Kegland Counterflow Wort Chiller with 3/8″ Barbs – can be converted to DuoTight – $50.99 + Free Ship Eligible

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 – $55.99, Save $14 + 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.
