Chill your wort without worrying about your hop additions clogging up the works! This beefy counterflow heat exchanger is made from fully passivated 304 stainless steel with 1/2″ BSP male thread connections. Plate chillers are great for their high efficiency and compact size, but if there’s too much hop matter in the wort running through them they can quickly clog up. Transferring wort from your kettle to your fermenter is one of the critical steps in the brewing process where you don’t want any hiccups. This stainless wort chiller can withstand high hop additions without clogging issues and has a higher chemical resistance than copper chillers.

1/2″ BSP male thread connectors. We recommend using with Type-A camlock fittings.

Specifications:
Coolant Line: 21 mm ID x 22 mm OD (6 m Long)
Wort Line: 11.9 mm ID x 12.7 mm OD (6.5 m Long)
Coil Height: 180 mm
Coil Diameter: 280 mm
Connectors:1/2” BSPT
304 Stainless Steel

KegLand Part Number: KL08747

25′ Stainless Steel Immersion Wort Chiller from MoreBeer

More Info

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

Few materials are more durable or more attractive than stainless steel, which is exactly what sets this Stainless Steel Wort Chiller from MoreBeer! apart from similar chillers. This high quality stainless wort chiller includes 8 feet of vinyl tubing attached to both the in and out using a female garden hose fitting on the “in” side, as well as 25 feet of stainless steel tubing measuring 3/8 inch diameter.

Although stainless steel takes a little longer to cool your worth than comparable copper tubing, its advantage is that it won’t tarnish between uses. Stainless steel is also much more affordable than copper, which makes this an economical choice that won’t sacrifice quality or real-world effectiveness. This stainless steel wort chiller also contains a brass hose adapter for an even more attractive, high quality look and feel.

The Stainless Steel Wort Chiller 25’ x 3/8” from MoreBeer! is made entirely in the U.S.

Note: The inner bend on the coils have small indentations that are a natural result of the winding process used during manufacturing. As an upside, these do actually help turbulate the cooling water to eliminate laminar flow (helps increase the cooling capacity).

  • 25′ Stainless tubing
  • 8′ Vinyl Tubing
  • Brass Hose Adaptor
  • 10″ diameter
  • 8″ to the top coil
  • 15″ to the bend to go over the lip of the kettle.

 

Use to… chill your wort after the boil.  Stainless has the advantage of continuing to look good and being easy to maintain.  Copper requires more maintenance and cleaning.

Kegland Stainless Counterflow Chiller

In the past, I did some trials on the different types of wort chillers, and ended up with a counterflow chiller as the best solution for me. Of course, it depends on what you are prioritizing as a feature. Plate chillers are the fastest, but after I had a clogging incident, I had no confidence I could ever get it 100% clean again. Immersion chillers (even fancy ones) were slower, but most notably, they required me to continually bob them up and down in order to really be effective. The counterflow chiller is fast, and the relatively large passageways mean you don’t have to worry about debris clogging them up.


Check Current Price & Availability, Review Continues Below:


Here’s how a Counter Flow Chiller (CFC) works. You wort flows inside a smaller diameter tube, which sits inside a larger diameter tube that’s filled with your cooling water. Heat gets drawn out of the wort through the conductive walls of the inner tube (made of heat-conductive metal like copper or stainless steel). To keep the package size compact, these very long lengths of tubing get coiled up on top of each other like a snake. And there are 4 connections- wort in, wort out, cooling water in, cooling water out.

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.
