The best deal we have ever found in a highly efficient counterflow chiller! This 25' pure copper pipe unit features 3/8" hose barbs for  wort and quick disconnect hose fittings for cooling water. It is an extremely efficient chiller, capable of chilling 5 gallon batches in one pass, as long as your cooling water is 60° F. or less. Easier to clean than a plate chiller, and much more efficient than an immersion chiller. This can be pump or gravity fed. 

For the water inlet and outlet, you can purchase our optional Cooling Connection Kit item Q74 or use common garden hoses with Melnor quick disconnect fittings. For the wort inlet and outlet, the chiller has 3/8" outer diameter hose barbs, use 3/8" silicone tubing like our item J46 (not included).   As this is a counterflow chiller, be sure to connect the cooling water inlet to the same end as the cooled wort outlet. 9¾” diameter, 10” tall.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The outer cooling jacket is not designed to withstand high pressure, so do not connect this to your house water pressure without the outlet of the chiller being open.

Love the removeable hosese

Review by John on 10/9/2022

This cools fast and it is easy to connect and disconnect. No more dripping hoses when I lug my chiller around. The hose fittings are plastic, so treat them gently!

Impressive

Was very impressed at how this little thing chilled my beer. Wort came out at 68 deg. This was in March where the tap water is still pretty cool. I may have to do a ice bath as summer approaches.

First time

I used to wait hours for the wort to cool down to yeast pitching temp. Today was the first time I every used any kind of chiller, 20 minutes after boil I was pitching yeast, so so happy with this product.

Great product at a great price

Review by Chris on 3/18/2019

For 22 years I’ve used an immersion chiller and I’m blown away at how much more efficient and quicker this counterflow chiller is. Wort leaves the kettle and enters this chiller at around 200-210 degrees Fahrenheit and leaves this chiller at 54 degrees. It takes around 15 minutes to gravity feed out of the brew pot through the ball valve. With the old immersion chiller I would usually loose patience after 20 minutes of chilling and dump the wort into the fermentor at around 80 degrees which is to warm. The cooling is painstakingly slow from 100 down to 70 with an immersion chiller but not with this counterflow ! It all happens in one pass through.

Good Chiller!

I was a little spoiled by my old 50' chiller as I had to slow down the wort flow through this 25' model to cool properly. Get the Q96 tubing kit and you'll be brewing immediately. Remember to sanitize before use and blow out the water if you're storing it in an unheated area in winter.

Q: What would be the best way to drain this wort chiller and get all the moisture out to prevent any corrosion inside the tubing?

A: You ,don't have to worry about corrosion as the tubing is all copper. Just make sure to clean it right after brewing and blow out whatever water remains.

Q: What is the easiest way to start a gravity flow siphon?

A: Either by sucking on the end to fill it, or to prefil it with water and then release the water with your thumb over the end when it is low enough.

Q: Will the difference in hose ID cause major leaking problems if I connect to 1/2" Barb cam lock fittings to use with my pump?

A: It might, unless you can figure out a way to close the gap between 3/8 and 1/2"

Q: Would it be possible to sanitize by submerging the entire product in hot water, or is the sidewall material not very heat tolerant? Thanks.

A: To sanitize, it is best to run sanitizer through the copper wort tube. Soaking the entire unit would not move the sanitizer through the tubing well enough to sanitize in our opinion. The outer plastic hose cannot handle temperatures of over 150 degrees F.
