Rebel Brewer ChillHog 4000 purchased in May, 2011. Replaced with longer 40 plate chiller from Duda Diesel, so don't need this one too. Can include the camlock fittings shown in the picture for the right price. I also have some of the ball lock style [stainless steel] fittings that I can change over to. I would include hose side fittings for those if you need them (not for the camlock). Otherwise, QD fittings will be removed before selling.

Prefer to not ship, but will if buyer pays shipping cost for the chiller.

Looking to get $80 for the chiller without fittings. Willing to entertain reasonable offers, as well as trade if you have something I want/need.

Label print has been washed away from submerging in PBW solution to clean.

Ive looked at the Rebel before. I need something to cool 10gal batches and worried that its too small. You mind giving your thoughts since Im not as familiar with the DudaD versions. Im assuming its a faster chiller.

Tnks
Dave

Depends on your chill water temp, flow rate, what your target temp is, and how long you want to run it for. I went to the larger chiller due to chilling about 7 gallons (end of boil volume is usually around 7-7.5 gallons for me) and not wanting to take too much time. During the cooler months, the smaller chiller was good. I wanted to chill faster though. Especially when brewing at my buddy's place, where we typically started after 6pm. Didn't want to spend longer chilling and make the night even longer.

The longer DD version, due to increased capacity, chills faster. It also retains more inside it. You need to decide which items are more important to you.

BTW, the DD version I got was NOT cheap. So, if cost is a concern/factor for you, you'll just have a longer chill time.

macmaniac,

Definitely check out http://www.dudadiesel.com/ especially since he is your neighbor in Madison Al. You'll be able to pick one up from his store and save money on shipping. The owner's name is Brian and he's a great person.

Sold this tonight... Got $85 for the chiller, plus another $5 for the hose adapter to make one of the hose fittings female...

No QD fittings were included with it.
