I have used counter flow and immersion chillers and none come close to the Blichman plate chiller. Easy to use and clean immediately after use.
this thing is bad ass. used to take us 30 min to knock out 5 gallons. now it takes 1 min. excellent purchase. just make sure midwest sends the right hookups for your march pump- also everything on this kit requires 1/2�?��� tubing
I have used a couple different methods to cool my wort but this plate chiller is the best. The claim of 10 gallons in 5 minutes is no exaggeration. Loving the ice cold winter as the wort cools even faster. One of the better investments I have made in my brewing. _x000D_The only problem is the price, there are other companies with similar products for much less. A buddy has the ripoff version of this and it works almost as well.
In winter it cools anything as fast as I can pump it. In summer when the water warms up I first recirculate for 5 minutes and drive the temperature way down to under 120F. Then I run the feed through a prechiller sitting in cold water and can get my wort down to pitching temperature.
I now have the ability to brew half a barrel and cool it in a reasonable time. The old immersion chiller took an hour for 15 gallons, while the Therminator takes around 15 minutes
