Using an immersion chiller is an economical and easy way to chill a wort to yeast pitching temperature in the shortest possible time. This immersion chiller is constructed from 25" (6.1 m) of 3/8" OD copper tubing, heavy duty 3/8" hosing, and a high quality compression fittings
Note: It is important to clean and sanitize the chiller before each use. One way of sanitizing is to place chiller in the boiling wort for the last 15 minutes of the boil.
To increase the efficiency of the chiller, the wort should be stirred with a sanitary spoon. When the temperature has dropped enough, the chiller itself may be swirled in the kettle. Caution and common sense should be used when touching the chiller because the water leaving the chiller will be very hot.
An adapter is available to connect the garden hose fitting to a kitchen sink.
During the warmer months of the year, or to increase the efficiency of your immersion chiller, a pre-chiller is recommended. A pre-chiller is a 15 (4.6 m) copper coil that is submersed in an ice water bath while connected to the wort chiller. Our pre-chillers come with garden hose fittings for an easy connection to the immersion chiller. The water first flows through the ice cold pre-chiller before it goes through the wort chiller itself.
