Plate chiller

Unread postby marcobock » Sun Jan 13, 2019 11:58 am

New plate chiller works like a charm.
Starting at 84 Celsius pumped with the pumping device from Speidel, through the chiller and with 23 Celsius into the fermenter.
Cooling water at around 20 Celsius, being summer in Kenya.
Takes about 20 minutes to empty the BM 50.

Next time I will try water through cooling coil in ice water, should reduce the time.

I tried a ice pre-chiller with some success.
Salt in the water helps.

Get an under counter cooler -

Use it to cool your incoming water due, and then you can also use it to cool your beer lines when drinking it too.

See you have the ever present moisture spot inside the controller, my brand new one is the same. Emailed Speidel and waiting for a reply.
