    Using a Counter Flow Chiller as a heat exchanger for mash temperature control

    Just doing some brainstorming on how to reduce brewing equipment or have a device perform multiple functions. Along this line of thought; has anyone used a Counter Flow Chiller (CFC) or a plate chiller as a heat exchanger for mash temperature control instead of a HERMS coil or RIMS setup? It...

    location for shutoff valve in setup with CFC and pump

    Hello, I've been slowly upgrading my equipment and I'm finally getting around to building an actual stand. I have a CFC I've been using gravity for and want to move to using a pump. I've been searching around and every time I think I'm close to figuring it out, I confuse myself. The question I...

    Cleaning the Grainfather (Counter Flow Chiller) CFC after a long hiatus

    Hi all! I have had a grainfather for a while now but have had a brewing hiatus. I find it hard to fully drain the CFC free of water. I picked up the CFC yesteday and realized that it had not drained completely, meaning that there has been water inside it or two or three months. My normal...

    Hop Filter Necessary with CFC?

    I am almost done with a 10 gallon eBIAB build, and I am wondering if I need to use a hop spider or not. I own one of the stainless mesh baskets that hang from the side of the kettle, but I would have to modify it to be able to keep my lid on for my steam condenser. I have only once had issues...

    Best way to swap hoses and reclaim wort during brew session

    I am new to using a pump - I tested the Riptide I just bought with water and it works quite well. But my CFC will drastically throttle the exit velocity from the whirlpool arm, so after cooling my wort, I will have to swap a few hoses to remove the chiller from the fluid circuit. Does anyone...

    Optimize Flow through Counterflow Chiller

    I am converting my old gravity-fed CFC to be used with a pump and a whirlpool arm. I plan on using the SpinCycle whirlpool arm, which requires a 1/2" NPT male connection. I plan on just using camlock fittings, and I will use 1/2" ID silicon tubing on the input end of my chiller, but I have...

    Best tubing size to use with CFC

    I am planning on slowly upgrading my brewing rig. The next step is to add a pump so I can more easily chill my beer and whirlpool - for both leaving trub behind and more easily adding whirlpool hops. If I remember correctly, my CFC copper tubing is 3/8" OD and 1/4" ID: I am assuming that it is...

    SS CFC chiller-number of paases?

    To those ussing a SS CFC chiller, how many passes are you doing? I have a 25 foot SS chiller I use with a pump and about 50-54 degree chilling water. I recirculate until the boil kettle reaches pitching temp. But it takes nearly 30 gallons to do this. Is this extreme? Pump and chilling water...

    FS 25ft CFC

    I made a cfc out of 3/8" copper tubing and used a high temp rated hose for the outer plumbing on it. I have used it a few times and it cools batches very efficiently.
