The compact cooling unit MiniChilly, made of stainless steel, is an ideal solution for micro-breweries and home-brewers.
The MiniChilly has 0.5 Kw or 1700 btu of cooling capacity. The SB Comp has a cooling circuit with a water-bath for placing individual  submersible pumps for each tank, suitable specifically for leading brewing systems on the market. Made in Germany with quality manufacturing and components, the MiniChilly SB Comp is a durable system for many years of problem-free brewing. Provides reliable and efficient cooling for fermentation control, crashing Brite Tanks and Lagering.
The unit has special grooves for threading and protecting the pump cables. It is mobile on wheels for easy handling in the brewery and compact in size. 3/8” barbs are well-suited for the fittings of common 12V submersible pumps, and allow easy connection with plastic tubes for Glycol water. The MiniChilly is able to cool water down to 21°F using glycol.
This unit does not come with a pump. You must have a pump to move the glycol to your tank or fermeter's cooling system. If you need a pump, try our Glycol Pump Kit (GLY355)! Each Glycol Pump Kit includes a submersible pump that is placed in the cool bath of the Mini Chilly 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 the liquid in your vessel to the desired set temperature.
  • Cooling of Fermentation
  • Cold Crashing for Brite Tanks
  • Maintain Lagering Temperatures

The MiniChilly 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 each 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.

Cooling Capacity estimates based on 75°F ambient temperature with neoprene insulation. 

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

Set Up:
In order to hook up the MiniChilly to your fermenter or tank's cooling system, you will need 4 lengths of tubing. All tubing connections should be secured with hose clamps.
