Product details

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 wort 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.

Check out our connection packages to make setting up the chiller even easier!

Used it for the first time and seemed to be a little slower at chilling compared to our plate chiller. However, much easier to rinse and sanitize.

Overall I'm happy with the wort chiller and fittings. Except. Although pretty clear, the directions could have benefited from a schematic of how to connect the parts, and part numbers on the sheet to correspond to what was on the package. All that is just my opinion though. The chiller itself does a fine job and I'm happy with it. My 25' one cooled WAY better than this one but that is just thermodynamics and I'm not knocking points off for that since I knew that would be the case. I do wish there was a longer option and as I LOVE the solid construction.

Sadly, what isn't was that the worm gear clamps were faulty. All of them They would tighten down about 3/4 and just stop, and from the outset, hit a point every revolution that caught and was really hard to get past. More pressure and they started bending. I ended up not using them and had to go buy others for the job, which made the whole experience less than ideal. The ones I bought local were as smooth as butter. NB sent me a gift cert for my troubles and the thought was nice but I would have preferred an easier set up since I rarely buy online so the certificate will probably be wasted.
