    Blichmann ThruMometer 3/8..

    $29.99

    The Blichmann ThruMometer In-line Thermometer is a great way to know the temperature of your wort while it’s being transferred. Very helpful when using a counterflow or plate chiller to read the temperature of your wort going into the fermenter. Made of heat-treated highly corrosion resistant aluminum. Reads from 58?F – 88?F, and has 3/8″ in and out posts.

    Note- Clean with mild detergent only, using warm (no hotter than 140?F) water. Do not soak in the same bucket as other metals, as this could result in galvanic corrosion to the aluminum. After use, dry thoroughly and store in the protective plastic tube.

    Counterflow Chiller Caddy..

    $129.99

    Counterflow chillers are popular among home brewers because they?re so fast and efficient, but no one enjoys the bulky mess that they create when they get tangled up in your hoses and pumps. Well, now we offer something to solve the problems created by your counterflow chiller: a counterflow chiller caddy designed specifically for mounting your beloved chiller!

    Our very own Order Fulfillment Manager, Ryan Barto, designed this handy caddy. It features a hook at the top to hold your tubing sets, rivets for mounting our optional March pump bracket and even wing nuts to help you securely attach the chiller right to the caddy. In order to control the flow rate through the chiller based on its temperature once it exits, Ryan recommends adding a ball valve and thermometer on the output side of the setup. He also notes that you can mount two counter flow chillers on one stand if you?re working on cooling wort for a lager brew.

  • Shirron Plate Wort Chille..

    Shirron Plate Wort Chille..

    $109.99

    Made with 11 stainless steel plates that have been fused together with copper solder, these chillers have small channels weaving their way up and down each plate. This creates more surface area for the wort to travel over, and more time for the water to cool the wort down.

    Cleaning a plate chiller is a larger task than a normal immersion chiller, due to the tiny pockets created by the channels in the plates. These pockets can harbor cold break material, hop remains, or any other solid, and if not removed can cause infection in subsequent batches. The best way to clean is to recirculate a solution of hot water and PBW through the chiller as normal, then backflush the chiller, bringing the PBW through the “Wort Out” side in out through the “Wort In” side. This should remove any particulate that may have gotten trapped by the folds in the plates.

    12.5″ long, 3″ wide, and 2″ thick. The wort inlet and outlet is 1/2 Inch Male Pipe Thread, and the water in and out is 3/4 Inch Male Garden Hose Thread.
