Haven't used it yet, looks like I'll need several items for tubing and fittings. Having a hard time finding these on site or the catalog. Seems like they could be offered as a package
I have used this chiller after whirlpool and can easily chill wort to below 70F if i have the water turned on full blast.
I have to slow the flow from my pump way down and it still doesn't quite cool the wort. Usually 78 degrees is the best I can get it. I am not totally sold on this brand.
Used with steelhead and disconnects, this is very nice on 5 gal. Batches.
I have had this one for about 5 years now and its been great. It's hard to clean like any plate chiller, but I have never had an infection or off flavor yet. I did however leave it sit without back-flushing, so I bought another one figuring 5yrs is enough. I also have a Blichmann plate which is equally good, but this one performs just as good as that for half the price.
