Product Details
Quickly cool your wort down to yeast pitching temperature and reduce the chance of contamination. All copper coil construction is easy to clean and will conduct heat better than other metals.

No need to sanitize. Simply drop your clean chiller into the kettle a few minutes before the end of the boil and it will be ready to go.

Brew with peace of mind like never before. Drop-angle connections provide insurance against contamination. Surprise leaks stay outside your kettle and away from cooling wort.

Ensure secure tubing with proprietary barbed fittings. Eradicate shooting streams of water that make a mess in your brew cave. Do away with ill-fitting hose clamps on mis-shapen chiller connections.

Maximize flow and minimize fuss. The Copperhead®; drop-angle eliminates kinked tubing. No more hassling with propping up water hose. Tubing can now hang tension-free, kink-free and problem-free.

Standard garden hose connection allows for brewing outside or connects to a laundry sink faucet as your chilling water source. Use the optional Faucet Adapter to connect your Copperhead® to a standard kitchen faucet when brewing inside. Dimensions: 9 inches wide, 16 inches tall to the bend, 3/8 ID tubing, 25' of copper tubing

First Impressions from a Rookie Brewer
Used for the first time Thanksgiving Day, Chiller worked well bringing a 5 gallon extract (Brickerwarmer Holiday Red) boil down to 70 deg. In about 20 minutes. Input water temp was around 55 deg. – Initial observations: The O ring fit well (I guess it was corrected from the previous review) but 2 things, First there was a leak from the compression fitting on the input side, easily fixed by tightening with two wrenches. And second, there were no instructions on first use preparation, cleaning, or storage. I had to scour the net for other’s recommendations.Over all a great product, looking forward to sampling the Brickwarmer Red in a few weeks.

Awesome Product
It cools the wort down extremely fast. i'm shocked at how good this works. Under 15 mins and i can get a 5 gallon batch to the correct temp.

Initial observations
I haven't used it yet for a brew day yet, but there aren't any reviews here yet, so here are my two cents after unboxing. This is a solid piece of equipment, all of the brass fittings are very high quality, and the drop angle design is a nice feature. However, I have two things I want to address. My main complaint is that the o-ring that is included for the hose fitting does not fit inside of the threading. You really have to cram it inside to get it in, and even when you do, there is not enough exposed threading to connect the hose. You can even see this in the picture displayed above. I'm sure I can find one that works at the hardware store, but at a $70 price point, I would expect NB to have basic issues like this figured out. The second thing I want to point out is that if you have a 5 gallon pot, the drop angle height is too tall to rest on the lid of your kettle, so the coil will sit on the bottom. If you don't have a large pot, I would recommend getting the standard design. Overall, I would recommend this chiller on the condition that NB can figure out the o-ring issue and deliver a leak-free chiller out of the box.

definitely worth it
Excellent product and at least 7x greater thermal conductivity than stainless.

Worked well
First time using it was last weekend. It worked well, bring about 3.5 gallons of liquid down to around 70 in less than 20 minutes.

Cool Addition to Brew Day!
Cools my wort down with a lot less effort than an ice bath! Hook it up and run it about 20 minutes (4 gallons) or so and the wort is at temperature to transfer. This item was suggested by quite a few fellow brewers as a must have for anyone who is brewing. I love that the connections are outside the brew kettle. If a leak should occur (Murphy's Law) all the spillage will not ruin your wort! On the downside though (Sullivan's Corollary-Murphy was an optimist!), I guess you could flood your floor! A must buy regardless!

Is this 50' or 25'?
K E on Oct 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I took a quick measurement and it was right around 25'.
Would it be overkill to use this when making a small-batch with a 2 gallon kettle?
O P on Aug 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It will certainly chill it quickly! Since the objective is to chill as fast as possible I think it would be fine. It would definitely be faster than an ice bath.
I'm very new to brewing and just setting up. What are the advantages of cooper vs stainless steel wort chillers? Which one should I buy?
Michael F on May 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There's no right or wrong answer. Copper is technically more efficient but will tarnish over time which needs to be cleaned off with some brew cleanser. Stainless is more rigid and will not rust or tarnish.
Unpacking instructions? Should the zip ties be taken off?
C H on Apr 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Zip ties can be removed. The clear plastic tubes should be able to move freely, but should remain connected to the copper coil.
Would the bend on this chiller clear the top of a 15 gallon mega pot and still be close to the bottom of the pot?
Andrew G on Mar 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: no I have a ten gallon pot and it does not reach the bottom

Gabe from NB
I boil in a converted 1/2 barrel Sanke keg. How tall is this chiller?
R A on Jan 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is 9 inches wide, the coils are 5.5 inches tall and the top f the goose neck is 21 inches tall. I actually spread out the coils when in use to better cool the wort. I highly recommend this cooler.
Does this come with the Faucet Adapter should you want to hook up the wort chiller to the kitchen sink? The description was not clear on whether that was included or was a separate optional product that needed to be bought.
C L on Dec 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It does not include the faucet adapter. It is ready to go to attach to a hose or msot utility sink faucets. To use on a kitchen sink, our faucet adapter works on almost all sinks, and that is a separate product. Cheers! James J.
I have a Mark II keg & carboy washer. My thought is to drop the pump in a large bucket of ice cold water and pump it through the Wort chiller and back into the bucket. Will the fitting on the hose attach to the threaded pump?
Eugene H on Dec 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The immersion chillers come with garden hose fittings which are not compatible with the included threaded parts on the mark washer. That garden hose fittings comes right off or you might be able to find some adapter at hardware stores potentially. I hope this helps! Cheers! James J.
Will the be large enough for a keggle? My old one was 50 feet and it just cracked.
A shopper on Apr 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Depends on the size of your kettle, but more importantly the size batch you are brewing. It will work on 5 gallon batches, but will struggle with anything bigger.
I recently purchased this but it does not fit the threads on my sink. I can bring the screw on piece from my sink to the store to compare sizes, but What size adapter will I need to buy to screw into the chiller?
M I on Jun 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hello Mike,

Thank you for choosing Northern Brewer! You should be able to use the following adapter to hook up to your sink. http://www.northernbrewer.com/faucet-adapter That being said, you can bring in your piece from your sink to the store, and someone there can help you out!
