4.3 / 5.016 ReviewsHandy, but....This is a nice addition to the Therminator! Definitely helps clean-up, but I feel it is a little overpriced. It is however a must-have, either build one or buy one, but you've gotta have it to properly clean the Therminator.November 11, 2012Not worth the moneyMuch cheaper and more convenient to make up your own plumming to backflush the therminator than using this. While this is made with good materials, it would be more convenient if this hose was long enought to more easily reach from the water outlet port of the therminator around to the wort outlet so that you didn't have to disconnect everything when backflushing between batches. I ended up using quick disconnects and PEX tubing at the wort outlet instead. Then when ready to backflush, I use a garden hose to PEX adapter to connect a garden hose to the outlet of the pex ... Much easier...September 14, 2010Makes cleaning your Therminator easierIf you have a plate chiller you have to face reality and accept that cleaning it is important and difficult. You can make your own, or buy this. But in any case you have to do something. I think this is good enough for my needs. It saves me time when cleaning.January 1, 2013Handy to haveIt's very handy to own, as you have to clean your Thermiinator very well. In retrospect I could have built my own for less, and I'd have make the hose longer. It's made of good materials/connects, but kind of expensive. But its very convenient and you really need it or to make it.April 12, 2013A nice to have itemI could buy all this stuff individually but instead I got it when I got my Therminator. I knew up front everything would fit so it was a little extra gift to myself. It makes cleaning the Therminator a lot easier and I suggest all Therminator owners get one.July 7, 2013Makes life easierI got this when I got my Therminator, and it's a big help. Its a lot better than constantly unscrewing hoses. Maybe I could make my own for a little less, but this was all done for me and one less headache.August 18, 2013Buy it or make oneEither build one or buy one, but you must have it to properly clean the Therminator. And it is a nice addition to the Therminator, It definitely helps cleaning up, but it's a tad overpriced. _x000D_September 15, 2013Just get it, you wont regret itThe dirty little secret of plate chillers is they need to be cleaned fastidiously. You need to black flush several times. This kit makes it easy to do so, and without it, it's a chore, that you might skimp on._x000D_December 30, 2013Makes cleaning easierIt makes it easy to backflush which you need to do a few times. The easier it is to clean things, the more likely you are to do so.February 11, 2014A time saverIt's overpriced but you will save a lot of time using it. When I clean my Therminator, I run the water both ways several times. That's the only way to get all the particulate out. Without this kit it's kind of a pain in the neck to do that. Lets face it, a plate chiller is the best chiller, but it's a pain to clean. If you don't clean it properly you will get stuff permanently drying in your chiller, possibly causing an infection. This kit is worth it to me, because an infected brew is the loss of the material, and an afternoon._x000D_It is worth the money. I resisted buying it at first but after a few uses I got it and am glad.February 1, 2013
