This Plate Chiller is designed to be the optimal compromise between achieving your optimal chilling conditions and maintaining your budget! Using a 10-plate design this chiller works the using the same method as more premium chillers. 1/2" MPT male threads are used for hooking up your wort in/out and a standard garden hose fitting for your chilling water and water output. Wort may be gravity fed through the chiller or for best results use a pump. Depending on the temperature of your ground water you may need to run your wort through twice due to the limited surface area.
