    Serviceable plate chiller?

    Just curious, why isn't there a commercially available plate chiller that can be disassembled and cleaned, similar to what professional breweries use? I assume the obvious answer is cost, but is there another reason I'm missing?

    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...

    Does it matter which way I hook up this plate chiller?

    I have a number of these Weyee plate chillers (from PicoBrew), which I intend to use for (duh) wort chilling with my newly functional Zymatic. Any idea if it matters which pair of ports I run the water through and which I run the wort through?

    Which is more efficient? Plate Chiller or Counterflow?

    I currently have a pretty good counterflow chiller made of copper. It seems to do the job fairly well and quickly. But it does seem to use a lot of water in the process. So, before I invest in a plate chiller, I must ask: will a 40 plate chiller be more efficient than what I have? Has anyone...

    Hot wort loop for plate chiller

    I've been in lactic acid bacteria hell, where every beer has turned into sour whey after a few weeks. Don't have the strict log but it coincides a lot with the use of a recently acquired plate chiller. I returned to the dreaded copper coil immersion chiller for the time being but can't stay...
