This looks very nice, well done

However, isn't the extra chilled water flowing in the same direction as the beer? or does the beer not output at the thermometer? Seems like the pre chiller coil should be connected to CFC's lower water port so that the beer and water are counter flowing.

yes, u r right. I was messing with fittings because i need a few more so i was connecting things up to see how many.

The cold water will go in the lower fitting and exit at the higher one.

good eye
