Excellent Wort Chiller
This is an excellent wort chiller. Simple to use, and cools the wort rapidly. I have used it once and will use it for every batch I make from now on. So much more efficient in terms of cost, speed of cooling, and use than the bags-of-ice-in-the-sink method. Zero leaks, easy to clean. I use it in a 5-gallon brew kettle.

Great Wort Chiller!
I received this as a Christmas gift. It is used with a Mega Pot 1.2 8-gallon brew kettle on my kitchen stove._x000D__x000D_The Silver Serpent is handsome, well made, and had zero leaks out of the box and in real-world use since then. The stainless steel is easy to clean. The kinks at the ends of the design would likely prevent leaks from going into the kettle if the chiller had experienced any._x000D__x000D_With a 5-gallon wort starting at 212F, this chiller was able to get the wort down to 80F in about 10 minutes using 50F tap water and a 160 gph aquarium pump (my kitchen faucet won't accept a hose adapter). I was very impressed with how quickly and how well it worked._x000D__x000D_Unlike a copper chiller, this one won't develop the green corrosion you can see on copper, though it seems to work as well as copper chillers do._x000D__x000D_If you're planning to by a wort chiller anyway, I think it's worth the few extra bucks to get this one. It's a quality product.

Great product
I recently put this chiller to the test and it performed very well. I went from boiling to 75 degrees in 10 minutes using water straight from my hose._x000D__x000D_I was a little worried about it not being copper and whether or not it would cool fast enough. I think it did as good or better._x000D__x000D_The design is excellent. The fittings are top quality and produced no leaks at all. It sits well in my Megapot 1.2 8 gallon and the design works very good. I can tell this will be around for a long time._x000D_

The Silver Snake works without fail.
I know everyone swears by copper as the best way to cool wort. This stainless steel wort chiller can take it from a boil to 70 degrees in 20 minutes with 55 degree water. I love it.

Awesome and essential!
This thing is amazing! It really does bring down the temperature down fast! It took my 5 gallon wort in my 10 gallon megapot that I bought from here as well from 212 F to 80 F in about 15 minutes. If I would have not been paying attention I would have actually cooled it down past the mark, it is that quick. Definitely worth the investment, could not imagine brewing without one!

Game changer
This is an absolutely critical piece of equipment for your home brewing process. it will reduce total time by hours, not minutes. The Silver Serpent Immersion Wort chiller is simple and easy to use and very effective in cooling your wort to fermentation temperature. I can get a 3 gallon wort from boiling to

well worth the investment
this is a must buy and shrunk my brew days down an hour or two. Just be sure to check the temp of the water coming from the faucet so you're not waiting for 30 minutes for the temp to drop a few more degrees when the temp of the faucet water is just a tad too warm!

Silver Serpent
I was unsure to go with copper or stainless & was worried by a few reviews about leaking at the connections. No problems with leaks & easy clean. Much faster than ice water bath!

Excellent Design- with great fittings for tubing
Initially I bought a copper immersion chiller which had straight connectors and relied upon wire clamps to connect the tubing to the coil. These were prone to small leaks and required frequent tightening. Any leaks at these connections could potentially contaminate the wort. The connections on the silver serpent are pointed down and away from the wort and are an improved design. Because my city water is never cool enough for effective wort chilling- I am now using both chillers and use the copper one in a bucket of ice water to feed chilled water to the wort hence greatly reducing the time to chill the wort.

Works great! Faucet gasket fell
Works great! Faucet gasket fell out before I got to use the chiller, but I improvised.

what size are the barb ends? would 1/2" ID silicone tubing fit?
R O on Aug 29, 2016
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?
N I on Nov 30, 2015
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?

Cheers!

Copper or Stainless? Pros and cons of each
D A on Jun 15, 2016
BEST 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 Supplies
Sorry I wasn't clear. I was wanting to know the overall diameter of the whole assembly so I can tell if it will fit in my pot.
V D on Mar 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The unit coil is 9.5-10" in diameter. If you have a brew kettle for 5 gallon batches, it will easily fit. This is a very good product. Improved design & cools wort very quickly from boiling temperature.
What is the diameter of the coils and high at the bend?
V D on Mar 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Tubing is 3/8 in OD. Inside of tubing bends to bottom of coil is 16 in on mine.
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?
Larry C on Feb 24, 2017
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?
A shopper on Nov 6, 2016
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 is the length of the coil? All the missing details make it suspect.
Todd Starr T on Mar 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The length of the coil is about 280 inches. There is another 30 inches of aluminum going into and exciting the actual coil. This should be pretty close. Hope this helps.
What size fitting does this attach to?
A S on Jan 30, 2016
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!
