DetailsA simple tweak—adding barbed fittings and a drop-angle to our favorite immersion chiller—spawns a new best-in-class product. Introducing Silver Serpent®, the most sanitary immersion chiller on the market.
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 Silver Serpent™ drop-angle eliminates kinked tubing. No more hassling with propping up water hose. Tubing can now hang tension-free, kink-free and problem-free.

7 months agoNot impressedChiller takes alot longer to chill a 5 gallon batch than I expected. Almost 2 hoursJanuary 29, 2019Purchased
7 months agoGreat tool at a great price! Cut down my batch cooling to about 15 minutes.January 2, 2019Purchased
9 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, 2018
- Customer Q&A
Browse 13 questions Browse 13 questions and 26 answersHow long is the tubing 25, 50 feet?BEST ANSWER: I am wondering where the customer service is that a company would bother one customer to answer the questions of another???
I find it rude and inconsiderate that a company would bother a previous customer instead of sending someone to the back to ascertain the answer for their customer with a simple question!!!
LAZY, INCONSIDERATE, DISCOURTEOUS, RUDE, TACTLESS!!!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"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?What is the length and interior diameter of the tubing?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.Will 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.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.Copper 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 SuppliesWhat 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!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?
