The big advantage of the imersion chiller is that you just leave it in until you hit your pitch temp. With a counterflow you have to pump. Also this chiller is affordable! The chiller is made from 50′ of 1/2” Stainless Steel tubing. This is a kit, Includes all the parts you need to attach to garden hose, if you attach to kitchen sink you will need a hose thread adapter. Uprights are ingeniously held together by a single hose clamp rather than welding/soldering.
Note: The inner bend on the coils have small indentations that are a natural result of the winding process used during manufacturing. By enlarging the photos you can view. As a bonus these actually help turbulate the cooling water to eliminate laminar flow.
Approx. 12.75″ diameter, 12″ to the top coil, 23″ to the bend to go over the lip of the kettle.
