DetailsAll-stainless channels allow for an easy to clean and sanitize chiller. The Shirron Counterflow works with gravity, or hook it up to a pump for even greater efficiency. Great entry level counterflow chiller. This chiller gets the job done quickly. Connections or backflush assembly are not included.

1 year agogreat for gravity feedI have used this chiller after whirlpool and can easily chill wort to below 70F if i have the water turned on full blast.June 4, 2017Purchased
1 year agoI 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.May 23, 2017Purchased
over 2 years agoGreat on recircUsed with steelhead and disconnects, this is very nice on 5 gal. Batches.April 13, 2017Purchased
1 year agoBest Chiller for the MoneyI 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.March 9, 2017Purchased
1 year agoSHIRRON ECONOMY COUNTERFLOW CHILLERChiller works well. Great deal if you buy it when Midwest has a 20% off sale. I would recommend it for small batches.January 7, 2017Purchased
1 year agoFaster than my old immersion chillerThis thing easily bested my old home made 25' immersion chiller. I use a pump and can get the whole beer chilled to pitching temperature in few minutes. My old chiller would take half an hour.February 2, 2014EffectiveUsing a pump I can get my wort to just 5 degrees above the water temperature. That means I'm done in 5 minutes instead of 30 with my old IC.December 4, 2013better than my immersion chillerThis si good value for a chiller provided you have a pump. In winter when my ground water is really cold I can cool a 5 gallon batch in a few minutes. Then I swap hoses and flush it out so its good for next time.August 19, 2013I'm happy with the resultsGiven it's size I was skeptical it would work but it does cool the wort to 5 degrees above the water temperature. For summer use I recirculate for a few minutes to get the temperature down, then connect a pre-chiller sitting in cold water and run it again and I get 68 degree wort - perfect.August 5, 2013
