DetailsThe copper brother to our customer favorite Silver Serpent®, the sleek Copperhead® chiller is the fast way to cool your wort to pitching temps! Drop-angle connections prevent tubing from kinking and potential leaks from dripping into your kettle. Make your brew day easier and faster, allowing you to effortlessly brew better beer. Comes fully assembled with tubing, barbed fittings and hose clamps.
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

2 months agoGreat way to cool quickly and n messI attached the open hose end to a small fountain pump ($20) and put the pump in ice and water in the sink. The boil pot is on the counter with the wort chiller inserted. Then I put the other return hose directly in the sink. With the pump turned on, the cold water circulates through the coil and then returns to the sink thereby losing no water. All I had to do was add a little more ice to keep the sink water really cold. My boils have dropped to 75 degrees in only 5 minutes. Perfect! Do not touch the return water ... it is really hot at first.December 6, 2018Purchased
3 months agoExcellent chiller, perfect for this small-batch brewerI brew half-batches (2.5 gallons) and up until now have been using a small wort chiller designed for small batches, but it was taking up to 45 minutes to cool my wort, even with my brew pot in a sink full of ice water. I wanted to try something else, so after measuring my pot ordered this. I am so happy I did - in my last brew I got my wort from boiling to ~75F in 15 minutes! The only thing different was the chiller, so let me just say I am now converted, this thing is amazing. This would probably work in a 5-gallon batch, but if you're doing small batch brewing I would highly recommend this. Cheers!December 4, 2018Purchased

4 months agoWork as expectedEasy to use. Worked as expected. My only issue was my local Baltimore tap water was too warm in October. Probably should invest in a pre-chiller.October 26, 2018Purchased
4 months agoGood quality just make sure to have a real house gasket handyFittings and everything seem to be great quality. Only problem is the hose gasket included is too small so it leaks and falls out whenever something isn't threaded in.September 3, 2018Purchased
6 months agoCopperhead wort chillerThe copperhead wort chiller cools the wort quickly and effectively and is recommended for that alone. Two minor annoyances: First the tubing is much longer than needed, as I chill the wort in my kitchen sink. Second the tubing is also very stiff, so I cut one tube in half and connected the halves to the hose connectors to make it more useful and easier to connect. One other glitch: one of the copper tubes from the coil was bent in packaging. I carefully straightened it and it appears OK (actually the tubing rounded out nicely). However, more careful packaging is recommended.March 9, 2018Purchased
1 year agoCopperhead Immersion ChillerI love this chiller. It's super easy to use and works great! Much better than using ice every time. I can cool 3 gallons of wort from boiling to 75 degrees in about 15 to 20 minutes. I just tapped into my first batch that I made using this chiller and it turned out great!December 27, 2017Purchased
1 year agoWorks great!It worked well once I bought the adapter for my kitchen faucet.October 28, 2017Purchased
1 year agoCheaply made and overpriced.Used this wort chiller twice and somehow ended up getting bent to the point of no return. This is my second wort chiller and had no other problem with my first one. Very disappointed. Cheaply made and overpriced!Added Aug 12, 2017August 12, 2017Response from Midwest SuppliesSoft copper tubing that is used in wort chillers can be easily bent if miss handled. It is very rare that we see this kind of damage to our wort chillers. If you contact customer service we do offer a full one-year replacement on chillers.August 17, 2017William R Staff

Browse 6 questions Browse 6 questions and 8 answersWhat size pot does this fit?BEST ANSWER: The diameter is approximately 9.5 inches.I assume I need to remove all of those electrical ties before I use it?BEST ANSWER: If you're referring to the zipties, no I don't believe you do, at least not the ones that are outside of your wort.I assume I need to remove those electrical ties before I use it?BEST ANSWER: Yes. Removing the zip ties allows for the chiller to be spread so that the coils can cool the wort quickly. I cooled wort from boiling to pitching temps in less than 10 minutes and used less than 30 gallons of water. City water temp about 55 to 60 degreesIs vertigre forming on the copper an issue? If so, how do you address or avoid that?BEST ANSWER: As with all copper, it can oxidize over time. To combat that, make sure you properly clean it before AND after use. I personally keep it in the original shipping box in my closet. Some discoloration always naturally occurs, but this has not affected any of the beers I have made. As long as you properly clean it (which you should be doing with all of your equipment), it is a non-issue.what's the length of the tubing??????BEST ANSWER: The copper tubing length is 25'.What is the chemical composition of the copper in this chiller? Thermal conductivity is dependent on chemical composition, and it may be a safer bet to go stainless due to the malleability of copper.
