25' Economy Wort Chiller
25' 3/8'' chillers are perfect for cooling 5 gallons of wort in minutes. No need to wait hours to pitch your yeast and tempt fate. Minimize bacterial infections of your wort and start fermenting ASAP. A wort chiller in combination with a yeast starter will make any average brewer a great brewer faster than you can chiller 5 gallons of wort;)

What makes one chiller "Economy" and another "High Quality"?

Chillers are just coils of copper or stainless steel tubing. 25' of length is generally fine for five gallon batches while 50' chillers are better for ten gallon batches. Both are approximately 10" diameter.

AIH is not an admirer of the "Economy" chillers on the market. The hose is generally just clamped directly to the copper cutting corners (and cost) We still feel this is not the safest of options but will follow suit to supply a competitive option for our loyal customers.

Higher end chillers will supply a compression fitting or soldered fitting to the copper. These fittings will then attach a hose fitting or barb for a safe rigid place to clamp a hose. We still prefer this method over our economy options. We are not trying to talk you out of this chiller, we simply want you to be completely educated on what you are purchasing.

Where do we refuse to cut corners?
While cutting cost, some suppliers have found it acceptable to use thin wall tubing on their wort chillers. We feel this is a hazardous decision and feel thick wall tubing should be mandatory on all chillers.

All AIH made chillers will have thick wall tubing to circumvent any chance of ruptured lines

A must have!!!
I just brewed my second batch of brew this morning. After the hassle of cooling my wort in the kitchen sink with an ice bath for my first batch, I went looking for something better. I checked the internet, my local brew shop, and even thought about making my own after watching some YouTube videos. I saw the 25’ 3/8'' Economy Copper Wort Chiller and thought for $40 I’ll take a chance. I’m so glad it did. It worked like a charm.

Awesome with a minor tweak!
After reading the reviews on here, I ordered one of these as an add on to my new brew kettle. Since I had read about the problems I knew how to eliminate them as I am a retired mechanic/fabricator. So I took the hoses off took a double flaring tool and created a small bubble on the ends of the chiller and reinstalled the hoses and clamps. Now it's impossible to blow the hoses off. I used it today for the first time and it worked perfectly. took my wort from boiling to 75 degrees in less than 15 minutes. Couldn't be happier!!

Better Brewing
I've brewed a few batches, but my latest was with the use of this chiller. Couldn't be happier. Very simple design, but gets the job done. Much easier than trying to cool your wort in an ice bath. Best darn purchase I've made in a while and worth every penny. Great price on this too by the way. Also was I was pleased with this site. Great selection and fast shipping.

Not Recommended
I have spent thousands of dollars on homebrewing equipment and ingredients on another well-known website. I decided to pursue this economy wort chiller as it was cheaper than any other chiller I could find, but that turned out to be a big mistake. If you buy this, do NOT simply throw it into your wort and assume it will work. I did (silly me, right?) and the input hose detached right away, spraying water into my wort and everywhere else. I managed to save that batch using the ice bath method. However, I figured everything would be fixed when I tightened the hose clamps. Wrong again! The hose clamp attaching the copper to the input hose would not tighten all the way. I bought more hose clamps and attached 3 of them to the input hose connector, but it will still come off if you send too much water through the thing(verified during testing on boiling water). Only by turning my garden hose on very slightly, sending a delicate stream of water through the chiller does it “work,” but it takes over an hour to cool the beer down to pitching temps that way. That is not good, and the advertised “cool your wort down in minutes” is misleading in light of this. They even told me that I would have to limit the input flow rate when I emailed them about it, but they don't mention that on this product page. I would not recommend that anyone buy this as a primary wort chiller. I will maybe use this thing as a pre-chiller in an ice bath. That is the only thing this product is potentially good for.

No runs, no drips, no errors!
Great price on an immersion chiller!! Here in central Iowa, the water comes out of the ground about 65* F even in the hot summer months. Even so, I was surprised that it only took 11 minutes to cool the wort down from 190*F to 80*F with this baby. I do a whirlpool of hops after the boil for about 20 min after the boil, cooling to about 190* first then add the hops. There are no leaks. I have a Price Pfister kitchen faucet with an odd sized aerator attachment, so I had to get a special attachment, but after that, great performance. No leaks. No runs. No drips. No errors. Just performance. Caution to those that haven't used one of these - the water coming out of the return hose is DANG HOT! Don't stick your hand in it to see if it is warm! That is what an idiot would do! Like me!

I recently picked this up on sale along with a few other items to combine shipping after realizing I couldn't make for under what the sale price was + my time. Worked excellent and chilled my wort in maybe 10 minutes to a pitch temp. The improvements to my brew is going to be well worth the investment. A+++

Awesome!
This is an amazing deal. All the fittings and materials are high quality and exactly what I was looking for, but was expecting to pay at least double. I would definitely buy this wort chiller again, but don't think I'll need to replace this for many many years. Thanks AIH!

Best investment to date
This is well worth the money. It takes at least an hour to cool the wort down using a sink filled with water and ice. This wort chiller does it within 5 minutes and at a reasonable price. Don't waste time cooling your wort in the sink with ice, save yourself the time and buy a wort chiller.
