Wort is very susceptible to contamination and infection below 180 degrees, so it's key to drop wort temperature to yeast pitching target temperature as quickly as possible. Our counterflow wort chiller features a dual tube design using cold water to cool your wort in mere minutes. Cold water will flow through the outer tube, while your wort runs through an inner tube en route to your conical. Leave your contamination concerns behind and ensure a strong start to fermentation with our counterflow chiller!
To get your wort to room temperature it's suggested you hook the water up to the coldest water supply available and throttle back your wort flow from the pump as to allow it enough time in the chiller for it to cool down enough.
Our counterflow chiller is only available with the purchase of a turn key system.
The chiller has about ~ .2 gallons of headspace.
