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

4.6 / 5.025 ReviewsGood 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
2 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
8 months 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
10 months 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 StaffThumbs UpGreatly reduced my wort chilling time compared to using an ice bath. Great product!June 26, 2017Purchased
1 year agoWorked great!Worked very well. No leaks during test or brew day. Set up woth a cheap pond pump and a cooler to recirc through couple pounds of ice and constant agitation. Dropped temps of 2 gal partial boil from 205 to 80 in nine minutes.May 28, 2017Purchased
1 year agoWorth the buy, money saver in the long runNewer to homebrewing (~12 batches, extract full 5 gallon boils). Used a couple times now, first impression was that it was smaller than expected, don't let that fool you though. Bought because the snow had melted and bags of ice are not feasible. Cooled wort a lot faster than I had expected, ~22-25 minutes the first batch. Second batch I realized if you move it around the wort every 30-60 seconds it cuts your time in half(12 minutes second batch). Have not had any trouble with leaks with connections. One heads up is after your first batch it'll look a lot cleaner even if you washed prior to use. If you're on the fence just read reviews and thread pages, haven't found anyone upset that they purchased it.May 9, 2017Purchased
1 year agoGood buy.Easy. Hooked it up to a submersible fountain pump and it works great.May 1, 2017

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.
