Our Wort Chiller will cool up to 5 gallons of boiling wort to pitching temperature in 20 to 45 minutes, depending on the number of gallons boiled and tap water temperature. Quick wort cooling means the wort can be pitched with yeast as soon as possible, reducing the time it takes for fermentation, with its bacteria-shielding C02 gas, to begin. Sanitizing our Chiller is simple - just immerse in your boiling wort after you turn off the heat.

Made of soft, pure copper tubing, our Wort Chiller is adjustable by bending to fit virtually any 5 gallon or larger brewing pot. Featuring 17" tall inlet and outlet pipes, our Wort Chiller will fit inside all the brewing pots we sell, as well as the Mash & Boil.

Uses standard 3/8" interior diameter tubing, and includes a brass female hose fitting for attaching to a hose thread faucet. It can be easily adapted to kitchen faucets with the purchase of our Screw-On Adapter or Snap-Lock Adapters (see this items listed at right).  Will cool 5 gallons of wort to 80° F. or less in 20 to 30 minutes, depending on tap water temperature.

Includes a 25’ copper coiling coil, 12’ of 3/8” clear vinyl tubing (cut it to the lengths you prefer), 3 hose clamps, and a brass female hose fitting connector to fit a standard outdoor faucet. 17” high, 9 1/2” diameter when assembled.

Wort Chillin

Review by MARK H. on 9/16/2005

Pros: Easy to use, works faster than I thought it would. I have chilled over 35 batches without any problems...

Cons: Maybe could use some better tubing.

Wort Chiller

Review by Justin H. on 9/17/2005

Pros: Cools much faster than puting your wort pot in the sink. Also very easy to clean and use.

Cons: Took almost an hour to cool 5 gallons of wort. My water temp may be warmer than tested though.


Review by BRIAN I. on 9/24/2005

Pros: Chills 5 gallons from 200deg to 80deg in about 20 minutes. Easy to clean. Easy to use.

Cons: A little tough to position in pot with top on.

Wort Chiller

Review by dfdegroot on 11/28/2005

Pros: Quick efficient cooling. Took 10 minutes to cool 2 gallons of boiling wort to 90 degrees. Fits perfectly into my brew pot. Easy to use and much better than a sink full of ice. Great value for the price. I just cover the brew pot with a towel while it is cooling instead of the lid which doesn't fit well with the tubes sticking out.

Cons: I always try to find at least one thing that products can improve on, but coming from cooling my wort by sitting it in a sink and filling it with ice (and still taking almost an hour to cool down), this product has been very useful and works perfectly. For the price, I could not imagine what could be improved on by this simple and efficient design.

Good buy

Review by Dominic F. on 9/9/2007

Pros: A quick, simple, and efficient way to cool your wort. The price on this is nice too, I couldn't find this much copper tubing and coil it myself for this price.

Cons: It's hard to find cons in a product that is so simple. It won't chill your wort as fast as a commercial heat exchanger, but did anyone expect it to?

Q: Will this attach to the end of a garden hose as is, or do I need to purchase and attachment? The faucet itself is too far from my brewing area to attach directly to faucet. Thanks!

A: This will attach directly to a male garden hose fitting.

Q: How do l clean the copper in and out and what do I need?

A: As far as the outside, it will turn brown and dull after a use or two. This is normal and will not affect sanitation or ease of cleaning. We just rinse ours off after use, and let dry until the next use. As far as the inside, no need, as all that goes through this is water which never contacts the brew.

Q: What is the height from the bottom coil to the top coil? Then the height of the the upright tubes. Thanks

A: The coil height is 4.5 inches although this can be easily expanded, accordian style, to be up to 9 inches, without passing the tubes. The top of the tubes is 11 inches from the base, one tube is longer (11 inches) since it curves up from the bottom, and one shorter (six inches) since it begins at the top of the coil-- but when the chiller is in it's compacted shape the tops are around the same height.

Q: Going to set this up in tandem with another chiller. Yours would go in to a bucket of ice water to pre chill my tap water. Need a connector from the exhaust tube of your coil to screw into my second coil. Do you carry one?

A: We do not have this piece, although the copper tube our chiller is made of has a 3/8" outer diameter.

Q: Will the hose fit a normal kitchen sink faucet or is an additional attachment needed?
