I have the smaller chiller that only has half the amount of plates as the full sized one. (Got it from Kk second hand for $20.00)djar007 said:Is one pass through the chiller enough to bring it down to temperature Truman?
Thank you. You have just provided a light bulb moment for me. I have never used my plate chiller as i can't be bothered fitting up the march pump and stuffing around cleaning it all later. I couldn't figure how to use it gravity fed and still have clearance, but with this simple process i have lost no height at all.Truman said:I have my plate chiller sitting vertically. Wort gravity feeds from the kettle to the inlet at the bottom of the chiller which then fills the chiller and flows out the top outlet and into my FV. My water flow goes the opposite way.
I get a nice steady flow through the chiller
