Chilled 10 gallons of wort from boiling to 70 degrees in less than a half hour. Took 1/2 the time immersion coil took to cool 5 gallons
Cleaning a plate chiller is a bit more involved than a normal immersion chiller, due to the tiny pockets created by the channels in the plates. These pockets can harbor cold break material, hop remains, or any other solid, and if not removed can cause infection in subsequent batches. The best way to clean is to recirculate a solution of hot water and Sodium Percarbonate (Napisan) or Powdery Brew Wash (PBW) through the chiller as normal, then back flush the chiller. Pushing cleaning solution into the "Wort Out" side and out of the "Wort In" side. This should remove any that may have gotten trapped by the ridges on the plates.
HOW TO SETUP
Mount the ChillOut vertically with the writing on the name plate facing up. For pump and gravity setup to avoid air being trapped in the water flow it is suggested that water out be raised above the height of the water in flow.
It is important to ensure that you use a good pre-filter to prevent hops clogging your ChillOut.
Hot Liquids are in use please ensure that or connectors are and hoses are secure before use.
