Wort Chillers & Immersion Coils
Wort chillers, whether immersion, plate or counterflow, stainless steel or copper chillers, could be one of the best investments you could make when putting together your homebrewing system.
Why? There are a few reasons and we will tell you a couple of them.
Once you have boiled your wort for the recommended amount of time it is extremely important to bring it down to yeast pitching temperature (remember to read your yeast label as this temperature does vary depending on the type of yeast you are using and beer you are brewing) as quickly as possible. The reason for this is to avoid off flavours, contamination and "cold break" (meaning you should get a clearer beer). Yes, there are different options for cooling your wort, an ice bath, setting it out in a snow bank (if you live in a cold climate), but the easiest and quickest is using a wort chiller.
We have a number of different options to choose from when it comes to selecting a wort chiller. We suggest that you ask fellow brewers what they use, or do some research on different brewing forums. Remember too, that using a wort chiller negates the need to try and move a large pot of extremely hot liquid to another area.
Our copper and stainless steel immersion wort chiller coils are Made in Canada and come with different fittings.
We also have a selection of chiller coils for you to make your own wort chiller. We only recommend that those mechanically inclined try to do so as these coils are a final sale and not refundable.
