The Shirron wort plate chiller is a highly-efficient, compact plate-type wort chiller similar in design to the Therminator. This chiller is made of 10 plates of 316 stainless steel that have been brazed together with pure copper in an oxygen-free furnace. The Shirron Chiller has a bit less surface area than the Therminator, but in our testing it was still very effective at rapidly reducing wort to pitching temperatures.
This chiller has 1/2″ NPT threaded male hookups for the wort, and male Garden Hose fittings for the chilling and waste water. Wort may be pumped or gravity fed through the chiller.
If gravity-feeding, we highly recommend using a kettlescreen and keeping your hops in a fine mesh bag to prevent clogging!
