1/2 HP Glycol Chiller For Home Brewing & Nano Brewing Applications
Are you a homebrewer who frequently runs out of space in their fermentation chamber or needs to cold crash a beer while fermenting another? Maybe you need to step up to a glycol chiller. To learn more about temperature fermentation control, check our blog post here.
The Penguin glycol chiller is suitable for homebrewing and nanobrewing applications down to about 5F depending on the heat load. The built in controller maintains the temperature of the glycol at the set point. Using one of our recommended glycol pumps you can pump out the chilled glycol to fermenters or brite tanks. There are 4 inlet and 4 outlet 3/8″ tubing fittings in the lid of the reservoir along with an addition hole to run the power cord for each pump.
1/2 HP Chiller Features:
- 1/2 HP Glycol Chiller
- 2850 BTU/hr @ 28F
- Cools up to 4 fermenters at once
- 2 gallon reservoir
- 1 year warranty
Intended for maintaining fermentation temps/crash cooling, this homebrewing glycol chiller will take your brewery to the next level. Not recommended for dropping wort from boiling temps. It is common practice to either use a 2 stage system where the chiller pre-cools tap water that then cools the boiling wort, or tap water is used first to drop the temps down to about 100F, then switch over to using the chiller.
At around 60 dB(a) when running this is quiet enough to use in the home brewery and is able to chill up to 4 fermentation vessels at once. Individual temperature controllers on each fermenter will allow to you keep different temperature set points so you can ferment an ale, a lager, and cold crash another beer all at once.
