Chill your wort quickly and efficiently without spending a fortune when you purchase this 40 Plate Wort Chiller from MoreBeer! This popular addition to your home brewing system promises to cool your wort to the perfect low temperature to get the best cold break possible, making your beer taste better without going over budget.
This plate chiller is equipped with a ½ inch MPT wort in and out, as well as a ¾ inch MPT water in and out. It measures approximately 8.25 inches long, 4 inches high and 3 inches wide, making it incredibly compact yet still very effective.
Here at MoreBeer!, we recommend back flushing your plate chillers immediately after every use to help ensure that they're clean prior to brewing the next batch. You may also want to run boiling water through the wort plates prior to use to make sure that any bacteria are killed.
Cleaning & Sanitizing a Plate Chiller
The easiest way to effectively sanitize your plate chiller is to recirculate boiling wort through it for the last 15 minutes of your boil. This ensures that the hot reaches every little space inside the chiller and kills any bacteria that might be present and growing in wort left over from a potentially ineffective cleaning after the last brew.
We also recommend that you flush the wort path of the chiller with hot water immediately after use. Together, rinsing the chiller immediately after use and then passing boiling wort through it during the subsequent brew should be all that you need to keep your wort safe batch after batch.
