My 60 plate chiller arrived a couple days ago! My first thought when I opened the package was "Damn that's pretty!" but I wanted to wait to write a report, because if there's one thing I learned in college, the pretty girls aren't always the best performers
Turns out, she's not just cute, she's a beast when on the job! Cooled my entire 15.5 gallon batch from a boil to pitching temps in about 15 minutes flat. I realized that this is a bit slower than advertised, but since it was literally my first time ever even seeing a plate chiller in real life, let alone using one, I'm sure I'm going to be able to dial it in a little better and really knock some minutes off that time. Still a fantastic rate though, regardless.
Incredibly easy to use, provided you know how to read the words "In" and "out" and you've ever used a garden hose before. Those are literally the only requirements.
Here's some pics!
First, my brand new 1/2 BBL single-tier;
And here's the action shot!
Oh yeah, look at her go! Ok, so maybe an action shot on a plate chiller isn't as thrilling as I'd hoped, but I'm EXTREMELY happy with my purchase. If anyone here is on the fence about getting one of these, then climb down off your pedestal of indecision and place the order!
