Northern Brewer Stainless Counterflow Wort Chiller
Chill your wort like the professionals do! The Northern Brewer Counterflow Wort Chiller utilizes the same technique as your favorite commercial brewery.
The tube-within-a-tube design allows for hot wort to flow through the chiller in one direction, while cooling water flows the opposite direction in a cooling jacket surrounding the wort. This efficient design ensures the hot wort is always in contact with a fresh supply of cool water - so no stirring or agitation is required! With a total of 18 feet of pure chilling power, our Counterflow wort chiller will bring wort down to pitching temperatures quickly.
Solidly constructed of 304 grade stainless steel, its durability far surpasses that of similar chillers made of copper or even repurposed automotive hose. Because of its low flow restriction, this chiller can be used with simple gravity or in a pump-driven configuration.

I decided to go with this chiller after years of using my plate chiller which was a pain to keep clean. I would totally recommend this chiller fast cool down and fast clean up. Even comes with mounting holes which is a great feature.
Customer Service is the worst
I'm am using 4 of these to create a heat exchanger to recover heat from the bottoms product of a continuous still. The product is of good quality and works great. My only complaint is that the 3/4" thread is garden hose and I really wish it was NPT.
I am very happy with the performance of the chiller. Took roughly twenty minutes from a rolling boil to 64 degrees. I’ve used a variety of methods to cool the wort, the is overall my favorite. Easy brew day with this addition.
Used yesterday. Cooled down my wort to 20C no problem. Very satisfied with the purchase.
