Now I can brew when I get home from work!, March 12, 2013

This review is from: HomeBrewStuff Super Efficient 3/8″ x 25′ Copper Wort Chiller (Misc.)
Brewing used to be an all day affair in my house, as our kitchen sink was waaaaay too small to effectively do an ice bath, so it involved setting up a cooler and having pounds of ice on hand to keep switching it out (which involved lifting heaving containers of water constantly). It used to take me roughly 3 hours to chill my wort.

This last batch took me approximately 15 – 20 minutes.

I went to the local hardware store to price the pieces to build this myself and found this was about $5 cheaper (and probably looks nicer than the one I would have built).

A few tips (mentioned in other reviews too):

1) Buy two extra hose clamps. They cost like $.90 each and will keep any water from leaking into your wort.
2) If you are hooking it up to a kitchen sink you will most likely need one or two adapter pieces. But these are easy to find from just about any decent hardware store.
3) Clean immediately after use. It is super easy to clean if you do it immediately – but if you wait you will have a sticky mess.

Just took off a star because I find it annoying that it really does need the two extra hose clamps and I feel like they should have just been included with the product. But overall I really like the product.

You’re thinking about buying this because you want to add to your brewing equipment collection and you’re tired of the ice baths & waiting around for hours. That’s why I bought this.

I just made an oatmeal stout yesterday and boy, did this wort chiller make my life easier!! Everything in the box appear in the picture (wort chiller, one long plastic tube, 2 clamps & basic instructions). First, you need to cut the plastic tube in half so one tube can be used for the water input & the other for the water output. I like that they give you one long tube and you cut it yourself, because you can adjust the length to fit your brewing area. Once it’s cut, attach the tubes and BAM, it’s assembled! I didn’t put on the clamps, turned out I didn’t need them.

My wort was ~210° after I put the chiller in my kettle; I set a timer then turned on my hose. Within 13 minutes, my wort was now 93°! Wow, that’s crazy fast!! I let the water run for 3-4 more minutes and it only went down 1 more degree. So it seems like the wort chiller made my wort as cool as it could go, which was in the low 90°s, all within ~15 minutes. I brought my kettle inside and gave it one ice bath and within 5-8 minutes, it was at a perfect 77-79°. So I did need to give my kettle one ice bath, but it was a very short ice bath, to bring the wort to ideal room temperature. Cleaning the wort chiller was easy, I simply washed the copper coils in my kitchen sink and held the tubes up to let gravity drain out any remaining water in the tubes.

I highly recommend this! I waited awhile to get a wort chiller because they’re expensive. This wort chiller is a very reasonable price! I was nervous buying this from this seller because I’m always a little nervous when not buying from a prime seller. But it appeared at my home in California very quickly. I couldn’t be happier! 🙂

Needs adjustment but does work!, December 10, 2012

Test this out before you use it! I had to adjust the tubing a lot to get it to not leak. I replaced the clamps with some that would not damage the tubing as much.

After I added a valve to the hose side, it works like a champ! I can reduce the temperature of a 5 gal batch from a full boil (212* F) to about 70*F in 35 minutes. This simply cannot be done with an ice bath.

I may add a pre-chiller for the summer when my ground water is warmer. But for now it works very well.
