Simple & Effective !

Review by Larry R. on 11/5/2007

Pros: I have two of these cascaded: The first one is in a 3 gallon pott filled with crushed ice, the second is obviouly in the wort. 5 gallons to pitch in 15 minutes or so.

Cons: None.

Simple and gets the job done.

Review by Chris M. on 3/8/2008

Pros: - Cools the wort quickly...about 15-20 minutes - Low maintenance - No sterilzation needed

Cons: - A tad pricey, but given the current prices of copper, makes it a little more reasonable - may take longer to cool during the summer months depending on the temperature of your tap water

Chills it quickly

Review by KingBolete on 3/17/2008

Pros: Quickly cools wort down to pitching temperature. Fits right into pot. Beware of the outflow water initially since it's very close to wort temperature---ouch!

Cons: Get adapter to sink threads if you need it (chiller uses garden hose threads).

Chiller works great!

Review by Christine R. on 7/12/2008

Pros: This chiller cools down your wort very quickly. I put mine in the brew pot 30 minutes before I am done brewing to steralize it, then I attach the hoses when I go to use it.

Cons: Sometimes the hoses come off when I am using the chiller. It is probably my fault though, since I take the chiller and go up and down in the wort with it to cool it off quicker and to ad oxygen to the wort.

Great Chiller!!!

Review by Shaun C. on 7/15/2008

Pros: This chiller is a great addition to any home brewer's brew system. It cools my wort down in thirty to forty minutes, which is a fraction of the time I used to spend immersing my boil kettle in my bathtub. In addition, by placing it right in the kettle after the boil ends, it is completely sanitized by the boiling wort! In addition, unlike plate chillers/heat exchangers it wont get clogged with trub or other nasty stuff!

Cons: I really can not think of any! Just watch out for the first water that runs through it, as it will be really, really hot!
