Bonsoir,

Does anyone have any experience of the King Cobra?

It gets some pretty good press here.

I have the Hydra and it is much quicker than the Speidel immersion chiller.

My first impression is no.

I did a bit of research I this before i built my turbo chiller. viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1923&hilit=turbo+chiller if you fancy a read.

If I was going to spend money I fancied the jaded stuff too. https://jadedbrewing.com

What are you trying to achieve? Quickest, easiest, cleanest or leanest ?

They are very nicely made and have a very small footprint given the amount of copper used, great design.

Be interesting to see the timings.

My only concern was circulation through it.

How well does it fit in the BM? It looks wide in the picture.

Not yet. I don't have the correct fittings to connect it to my hose. I have emailed the manufacturerm to ask what they are, but no reply yet.

I reckon they are 3/4. The big question... NPT,GHT or BSP ?

http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1070712 is a good idea.

Thanks. Here's their reply;

For the King Cobra, we have 1/2" male National Pipe Thread (NPT) threaded fittings soldered onto the copper arms, that have 3/4" Garden Hose Thread brass fittings threaded onto them. If you are not able to locate the 3/4" GHT fittings, you can remove them and see if you can locate (2) female 1/2" NPT to 5/8" (or 16mm) hose barb. We have heard some other customers have been able to connect BSP fittings to NPT, but it seems to be a little less consistent. The last option would be the cut off or use a torch to remove the fittings entirely and use a 16mm hose and a hose clamp.

That being said, if you would like, we can ship you a couple Garden Hose to 5/8 inch hose bar fittings that you can attach a hose to.
