More Info

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

The Icemaster is designed to cool fermentations in small vessels. It can be used with any vessel that has a glycol jacket or submersed cooling coil/rod. For each vessel you want to cool you will need to buy one of our Glycol Pump Kits. Each tank is able to be separately temperature controlled. Each Glycol Pump Kit includes a submersible pump that is placed in the cool bath of this chiller along with a digital controller. The digital controller includes a thermal probe that should be inserted into a thermal well in your vessel or can be taped to the outside of the vessel if you don’t have a thermal well. The digital controller then measures the temperature of your tank and turns the submersible pump on or off to cool to your desired set temperature. Up to four tanks can be controlled separately with one Icemaster and four Glycol Pump Kits (GLY355).

Compatability
The Icemaster can be used with any fermenter that has a built in cooling jacket or a submersed cooling coil. It works well as the cooling source for the following sytems and fermenters.

  • Ss Brewtech Fermenters and Brites with optional FTS Temperature Control Systems: Because FTS systems include a pump and controller you will not need to buy a separate Glycol Pump Kit.
  • Spike Conical with Optional Cooling Package – Because the optional Spike cooling system includes a pump and controller you will not need to buy a separate Glycol Pump Kit.
  • Speidel Tanks with Optional Cooling Jackets – You will need one Glycol Pump Kit for each tank.
  • Grainfather Fermenters – Grainfather fermenters have standard cooling jackets. You will need one Glycol Pump Kit for eash fermenter
  • Blichmann Fermenators with Optional Cooling Coil – You will need one Glycol Pump Kit for each Fermenator.

It is always difficult to determine exactly how many tanks can be chilled at one time as it depends on what is happening in each tank, if the tank is insulated, and what the ambient temperature is. Cold crashing always requires the most energy and requires tank insulation. We have experimented with capacities and can provide this general guide based on a 75 degree ambient and neoprene insulation. Neoprene does not provide much in the way insulation so you would obtain better results using Armaflex or a higher R rating insulation. If only controlling fermentation temps the capacity would be higher. Four Glycol Pump Kits (GLY355) is the maximum that will fit in the Icemaster. We are working on smaller glycol pump kits, where the pumps have smaller footprints, so the Icemaster right now has the capacity to use 5 pumps through the bulkhead fittings.

Cold Crashing capacity at 75F with neoprene insulation (double for fermentation temperature control):

2 – 1BBL (31 Gallon) Tank with neo
3 to 4 – 1/2BBL (15-20 Gallon) Tanks
4+ – 10-14 Gallon Tanks
4+ – 5-7 Gallon Tanks

KegLand G40.1 Icemaster Glycol Chiller – Fermentation, Wort Chilling, Draft Lines – $50 Off Coupon

KegLand G40.1 Icemaster Glycol Chiller

KegLand G40.1 Icemaster Glycol Chiller via William’s Brewing

More Info

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

The 220 volt Icemaster G40.1 is a versatile and complete glycol chiller that will let you chill everything from fermenters to keg beer with the proper hoses. The Icemaster features 4 stainless beer chilling lines without a pump and a pumped water line for chilling things like fermenters. It can be run with plain water, although to get maximum cooling and the ability to set it below 0 Centigrade, run it with a 20% propylene glycol solution.

This uses 390 watts of power on a 220 volt line. Casters are included for rolling the unit on smooth indoor surfaces. Also known as an Icebank Chiller. When running, this unit sounds like a loud microwave, so it should not be placed near sleeping quarters, for example. However, once it gets to its target temperature, it does not run all the time, and is completely silent between compressor cycles.

IMPORTANT: This runs on 220 volt current, and cannot be used without a step up transformer in the USA. For suitable 220 volt step up transformer, search the internet for ‘AC-1000 STEP UP’ from Siran USA and other makers (www.sinran-usa.com). These 1000 watt units are available for under $60.00

Chilling Fermenters

These 3/8” stainless barb outlets are marked WATER IN and WATER OUT and accept standard 3/8” interior diameter wort chiller tubing. The Icemaster features a generic STC-1000 centigrade temperature control (tons of stuff on the internet about this unit), and if you plan to chill a fermenter, set the STC-1000 control to your desired fermenter temperature in Celcius, so the water or glycol in the unit will be the temperature you want the ferment to be. Then hook up a cooling coil to the WATER IN and WATER OUT lines and put the coil in your fermenter to chill your ferment. You may find you have to set the STC-1000 4 degrees cooler than your target ferment temperature depending on your set up and ambient temperature.

Chilling Draft Beer
You can also think of the Icemaster as the ultimate jockey box for cooling draft beer. To do this, hook up your unrefrigerated keg beer to one of the 4 Beer Inlet Stainless lines using your beer line (these barbs are 8mm DuoTight fitting compatible). Hook up your beer faucet to the corresponding Beer Outlet stainless line, and you are ready to chill beer for immediate dispense. For the most effective beer cooling, a 20% glycol fill is recommended. One pass through one of the 4 stainless beer chilling lines will drop beer temperature by about 15 degrees.

Wort Chilling

If you use a counter flow chiller like our item L21, you can chill 5 gallons of water from 212° F to about 80° F if the unit is filled with 33° F water, and you connect the counter flow to the WATER IN and WATER Out pumped lines. Keep in mind the unit will heat up to around 75° during the chilling process. Better results will be obtained if you use a glycol mix in the Icemaster, although the glycol is a bit more of a mess. An immersion chiller is not efficient enough to work with this unit.

 

This is a multiple purpose unit.  It can be used for wort chilling, cooling draft beer and draft beer lines and for fermentation temp control.  Note that this is a 220v unit, however… you can obtain a step up transformer inexpensively.  See the product page for more info.

  • ★Samrt control, dry running automaticly cut power.(Principle:Dry running opreation will increase motor temperature, then the pump will automatically shut down, but the motor will restart working after the temperature goes down. Therefore, when the motor automatically turned off we need to cut off power immediately. This function can effectively reduce the damage caused by dry running.)

  • ★Maximum flow rate: 1100 GPH STRONG POWER and HIGH LIFT. Max Lift Height: 11 ft. 100W high efficiency motor for energy saving.

I use a similar pump (different manufacturer, features and specifications) for a recirculating draft line cleaning setup.  Note that fittings sizes are different on this pump vs the one I use in that build.  Adjust accordingly  Another possible homebrewing application would be to set this up for use a part of a recirculating wort chiller setup.

Copper Counterflow Wort Chiller with 3/8″ Barbs – $50.99 + free ship eligible

Wort Chiller - Copper Counterflow Chiller (with 3/8 in. Barbs) WC130

Copper Counterflow Wort Chiller from MoreBeer


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 (10mm). They can be used with gravity, but we recommend using a pump.

My home-brewery or most of my home-brewery is in my basement.  It’s in a good sized utility room that was drastically underlit for home brewing purposes.  Same story for our last house.  Basement brew area, low light.

I’ve added several similar workshop lights [different model, specs and manufacturer – here] to the area and it’s made a huge difference.  Instead of what seemed like a cave, I’m now in a well lit space.  Those have made a big improvement, made it easier and more pleasant to work in my brewery.
