Description

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.

Are the duotight fittings for this chiller available through More beer or do they need to be purchased through Kegland?

Pros and cons
It is what you pay for. I wouldn’t use if you plan on recirculating your wort while cooling. It runs very slow and prone to clogs if run at full speed and you don’t have a filter/strainer. If you plan ahead and run it as a single pass chiller slowing down the wort flow out to get the desired temp it’s not bad for the price but plan ahead on how to use it with your process.

Way better than I thought it would be.
Used this for the first time this weekend, gravity fed with a hose attached for counterflow. I was expecting it to be like 90F coming out then just wait a bit before pitching. NOPE. Straight from the boil after cutting off it was coming out the other end at 59F. CRAZY. Very satisfied.

The connecting pieces I just ended up using worm clamps and tubing I already had, probably worth it for the push fittings but meh. The most interesting part is figuring out how to have the boil pot above the chiller and that above the fermentor. It all worked out but definitely something to think about.

Best purchase for my setup as of late.

works as described
works well, not as easy as it seems to chill the wort to peaching temp but I guess it depends on the temprature of the tap water.

Great chiller.
The chiller is great. Even in the 98 degree Alabama heat I was at pitching temperature in less than 20 minutes. MoreBeer is without a doubt the best mail order business I’ve EVER dealt with. Shipping is wicked fast. They are super responsive to emails. Thank you for your commitment to customer service

Chilling wort just got simple
I used a 9.5 mm duotight ball valve for the cold water input (with a standard hose fitting) and high temp vinyl tubing with hose clamps for the hot wort input. The rest is 3/8" tubing.

This chiller cools my wort from 200+ down to 68 degrees (my ground water temp is ~55) in the time it takes to flow from input to output. Wort contamination at temps under 180 are now a non-issue. Super easy to clean and compact enough for easy storage.

I still use an immersion chiller on the rare occasion when I want to steep or whirlpool hops at or below 150, but this is my "go to" chiller from kettle to carboy - and I love it.

Perfect temp from the boil to the carboy
Used for latest brew. With only a few turns of the water regulator I installed on the one end, the wort temp was a perfect 68 degrees according to the inline thermometer and ready for fermentation.
