Description

If you’re tired of wasting time stirring your wort chiller to speed up the cooling process, you might want to try recirculation instead. This Immersion Chiller features a recirculation arm soldered to our popular WC45 SuperChiller, making the best-selling chiller even more effective than ever before. Recirculating you wort can also bring out more hop flavor and wonderful aromas in your IPAs, which is something that every brewer can appreciate.

This Immersion Chiller features ½ inch FPT fitting on the recirculation arm to accommodate a barb, a nipple, or a quick disconnect fitting for more customized connections and easier attachments. Its water inlet is ¾ inch female garden hose thread, while the water outlet is ¾ inch male garden hose thread. This makes it easy to attach the chiller to just about any common water source. With high quality copper piping throughout, you won’t find a chiller more durable or more impressive than this one. 


Estimated dimensions are:

12" Diameter
11.5" To the top coil
23.5" To the bend that goes over the kettle lip

Counter flow chiller pump was not working

It's time to go big in my chilling. and whirl pooling is a non-negotiable for me.

Vertical vs Slanted?
The wort chiller arrived in one piece, but it is slanted. The photo you show indicates it is suppose to be vertical. I am nervous about bending the copper because of possibly crimping the tubing. Is it supposed to slant or did something happen to it while being packed with other items?

Response from MoreFlavor
Sometimes the neck of the wort chiller will be bent or a little crooked from shipping. This isn't really a problem as long as it sits securely in your boil kettle. If you would like to bend it back the trick is to push from the widest and holds you can get. The farther apart your hands are the better the force will be distributed and the risk of kinking will be smaller.

Great item, works well
This immersion chiller is a great improvement over the economy stainless steel versions. It's lead-free soldered recirculation arm is awesome as well. Expect a tight fit in 10 gallon brew pots with a thermometer, but works great.

immersion wort chiller
cut my chill down time in half, plus the added benefit of hopping in a whirlpool.

Great chiller although I would probably not get the whirlpool arm
I love this chiller. It drops 7 gallons of wort from boiling to under 80*F in about 12 minutes with ground water in the high 70's. I will probably add a prechiller to get it in the 60s but that's an issue of my water temp, not the chiller. The only thing I would probably change is the whirlpool arm. It is hard to get the whirlpool arm pointed in the right direction to maximize the movement. Also, the solder joints for the whirlpool arm also collect residue that slows down cleaning. As a one stop solution to chilling and whirlpooling though, this is hard to argue with.

One word of caution: This is big! It didn't fit in my 7 gallon turkey pot which necessitated buying a larger 15 gallon pot, although it will just barely fit in a 10 gallon pot. Make sure to check your pot dimensions! As a note, MoreBeer also sells a taller, skinnier version for smaller diameter pots.

This is a great chiller
I have brewed for over 20 years and in that time I've used a DIY immersion chiller and also a DIY counter flow chiller which both worked decently but were in hindsight too small in tube diameter to be really fast chillers. I have used this morebeer chiller with the recirculating arm three times now on 10 gallon batches and this chiller is fast--from start to ale pitching temps below 68 in less than 15 minutes--which is at least 10 to 15 minutes less than either of the other chillers could do. I think the re-circulation of the wort greatly speeds the cooling process above and beyond the larger diameter copper tubing used in morebeer's chiller. In addition, the couple of hopstands I've done have produced hop profiles I've never before achieved. I used to dislike the wort chilling part of a brew day the most but now I almost look forward to it.

Fantastic chiller
I have gone from a DIY immersion chiller to a DIY counter flow chiller to this product over the course of over 20 years of homebrewing and without question this chiller is the best. If you want to do hopstands this will work great but even for normal chilling the recirculation accelerates the cooling process. With this chiller I can get 11 gallons of 212 degree wort to under 70 in less than 15 minutes.

Huge surface area, great product
Bought this for use with my new 1550 Morebeer Brew Sculpture. Huge surface area chills extremely quickly, however I haven't used the recirculation arm yet as the sculpture has one built into the kettle. Originally I was sent the wrong product (immersion chiller without recirc arm), but after a quick phone call one was shipped to me before I even shipped the wrong one back! Great service, as always, from Morebeer!

Half the time
This chiller cut my cooling time in half. I use a pump to for the re-circulation arm and a pond pump to re-circulate the ice water in the coils. Great product.

Great Product But Beware
Great chiller! I've had mine for about four years and absolutely love it! It's easy to set up, and unbelievably efficient.

After about 60 or 70 batches however, my chiller did suffer some metal fatigue which eventually resulted in the coil splitting wide open! The problem area is right at the spot where there is a bend just before the three lines split off.

Obviously this is a big time problem that I will have to address. I'll probably splice in a new section of copper tubing and solder it all back together. In the meantime, I've decided to simply purchase a new one. Not happy the old one broke but these chillers work so great I'm okay with buying another.
