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. This makes it ideal for the brewing market, along with many other low temperature applications. 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.
The Stainless Glycol XL line is a series of 4 chillers made with 304 stainless steel that have a significantly larger reservoirs than our standard line, the XL line also offers chillers with higher cooling capacities. The 2 piece lid allows you to route tubing and cords through the rear section and have access to the tub through the front portion of the lid. The rear section has 16 qty 7/8″ holes to accommodate 3/8″ or 1/2″ ID silicone tubing, plastic caps are provided to plug the holes not in use. There are 2 additional holes to run pump power cords through.
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.
