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.

4.9 / 5.065 ReviewsGreat tool at a great price! Cut down my batch cooling to about 15 minutes.January 2, 2019Purchased
4 months agoGreat Product – Highly RecommendThis is a great product. It does exactly what it is supposed to. I have been using it for a couple years and it still looks brand new. Tip for faster cooling: agitate the wort either by stirring or rocking the immersion cooler. The only thing that I don’t like is the residual water that remains inside the cooler and hose…even after taking the air compressor to it. I highly recommend this product for 5 gallon batches.December 26, 2018Worth ChillerIf you're still trying to cool your wort with ice in the since, spend the money and buy the chiller. Cools in half the time. Worth the money.December 7, 2018Purchased
5 months agoGood product would buy again!Great product, built well, cools the wort fast!! Works best of you don’t just let it sit at the bottom of the pan swirl it around in the wort. Would recomend for full 5 gallon boils max.November 17, 2018Purchased
5 months agoAwesome!What used to take me 45 minutes to an hour took five with this thing. I love it!October 16, 2018Purchased
6 months agoLove how the spouts are angled down and out of the kettle. Easy to cleanOctober 11, 2018Purchased
6 months agoIt works really well and fast to cool down wort it's so much better than using an ice bathOctober 1, 2018Purchased
6 months agoWorks as advertised. Cooled down 5 gallons of wort in under 30 minutes. I’m convinced!September 28, 2018Purchased
6 months agoGets the job doneThis is my first wort chiller and I cannot compare to other makes/models.
I'm impressed how quickly this cools down 5 gallon batch, in less than 15 minutes.
It comes already with a garden hose hookup and long enough output line. I ran the "used" water to my pool which was nice to conserve water since I live in SoCal and water waste is concern.
Very happy with this purchase.August 31, 2018Purchased
7 months agoLove it, cooled faster then expected, so much better then a sink of ice water and stirring.It worked really well, cooled down the wort quicker then expected. Worthwhile purchase to insure quality and cleanliness of the wort. Only issue is that the washer for the faucet attachment is quite thick and would not screw into the faucet adapter. Found a thin one to replace it.June 26, 2018Purchased

- Customer Q&A
Browse 12 questions Browse 12 questions and 23 answersWhat is the length and interior diameter of the tubing?what size are the barb ends? would 1/2" ID silicone tubing fit?BEST ANSWER: The barbs are meant for 3/8" tubing. 1/2" can be used, but you will need a clamp to hold it in place.What size boiling kettles does this fit?BEST ANSWER: Hi Nick,
It will fit inside most kettles, the main concern would be volume and cooling time. It will cool up to ten gallons, though it will take longer for more. For more than 10 gallons, a different system would be better. What's the size of your kettle?
CharlesCopper or Stainless? Pros and cons of eachBEST ANSWER: Copper is slightly more efficient at heat transfer ( 10-15%) but that would just be a few minutes of time. Stainless steel is more rigid, and keeps shape a bit better than copper, which is softer metal. Copper provides some trace nutrients used by the yeast, but the effect is very minimal. Stainless steel will not corrode in normal use, copper can develop an oxide called Verdigris, which should not be allowed to come in contact with food or beverages. It can be cleaned off the copper with vinegar, or with proper metal cleansers. -Mike W, Midwest SuppliesWill this fit in a 10 gallon Tall Boy kettle?BEST ANSWER: It'll likely "fit" but I would only expect it to hand about 2/3 of the way down if you put the hook on the lip of the kettle. This may be significant if your typical kettle volume is more in the 5-6 gallon range than 8-10 gallons as mine is.This unit looks like it would be great for cheese making - cooling after initial heating of the cream?BEST ANSWER: I don't know anything about cheese-making cooling, but as far as beer is concerned, the ss immersion wort chiller works very well for the advertised reasons, ie., the coil does not drip condensation into the hot wort and, because it is ss, it is very easy to clean after immersion. It probably does not cool as quickly as copper, but the difference is minimal, imo, and a better buy than the copper cooler.What's the distance between the bottom of the coiled part to the 45 degree bend in the intake and exhaust tubes?BEST ANSWER: Its almost 16", one side measured 15 3/4" and the other side measured 15 7/8"I brew smaller 1 to 2 gallon batches. My pot is 10.5 inches wide and 9.5 inches deep. Will this chiller fit my pot?BEST ANSWER: The coils on my Silver Serpent are about 9 1/2 in diameter and about 5 in deep. Unless you have any protrusions on the inside of your pot, such as a spigot or a built in thermometer, you should be fine.What size fitting does this attach to?BEST ANSWER: Hello Aaron,
Thank you for choosing Midwest Supplies! The silver serpent attaches to a standard garden hose thread. If you are running out of a sink, we do sell a faucet adapter http://www.midwestsupplies.com/faucet-adapter.html I hope that this helps!Can this be used for a Hermès coil in the HLT?BEST ANSWER: Yep, I have brewed 3 batches now just hanging this chiller in my HLT and circulating wort through. I have to set the HLT about 7f higher than the desired mash temp.I'd think that including dimensions in the product details would be standard protocol. What are the dimensions? Height, diameter, overall length of tubing.BEST ANSWER: Dimensions: 9 inches wide, 16 inches tall to the bend, 3/8 ID tubingWill the silver serpent chiller work in a corn mash to bring the temp down quickly. I need to wait 5 or 6 hrs for 20 gallons to cool to 80 degrees to add yeast?
