Large ZChiller

Adventures in Homebrewing is proud announce that we are now offering a full line of ZChillers made right here in the USA!

The ZChiller utilizes the enhanced thermal gradients of a counterflow wort chiller with the added benefit of greater surface area for heat transfer. Instead of a simple, cylindrical inner tube, the ZChiller utilizes a unique, convoluted “spiral star” design that enables superior heat transfer out of the wort as well as unparalleled cooling uniformity for consistent cold breaks and record cooling times. The chilling ability matches or exceeds that of plate chillers without the downside of disruptive clogs.  These advantages result in:

Reduced chilling time.
More efficient cold break to remove unwanted proteins and particulates from your beer.
Cleaner aroma profile because of decrease in DMS production, giving you a more pronounced aroma that you have worked so hard for.
Easier cleaning, especially when compared to a plate chiller.

These chillers utilize a tube-in-tube design, with the inner tube transporting hot wort one direction, and the outer tube transporting cold water in the opposite direction. This setup maximizes thermal gradients throughout the length of the chiller for efficient and even cooling.  Their efficient design leads to a greater degree of versatility when it comes to batch sizes and allows the brewer to use a wide range groundwater temperatures. In addition, a more substantial space for wort flow greatly reduces the chance of clogging compared to the plate chiller, making chilling faster and cleaning easier.

 Large ZChiller 
 9" diameter, 5.125" tall, made from 154" of copper tubing. Our most versatile chiller, the Large ZChiller can handle much larger batches that require a higher degree of cooling while at the same time retaining the ability to be used for small batches as well. If you want flexibility in batch sizes and true brewing autonomy, this is the chiller for you.

These come with 1/2" MPT fittings on the wort inlet and wort outlet tube and on the water tube they have Female Garden Hose Fitting on the inlet and Male Garden Hose Fitting on the outlet.
We also carry a full line of fittings for your convenience depending on how you want to set up your ZChiller, please check out our options in the links below.

Very Pleased
After using an all stainless counterflow chiller for several years, I was quite impressed with the performance of this all-copper unit. Chilling time is markedly quicker and construction quality is very high. Only minor negative is that there isn't an integrated mounting bracket. A good value vs. comparable all-copper counterflow chillers.

Invest for the best!
Although immersion chillers do their trick, the CF chillers are the way to go. Without much headache, you can dial down the flow rate to get the expected temperature when transferring after boil. Great upgrade to the system.

Highly recommended
This Z chiller is a valuable edition to the brewhouse. It is very well made with professional welds. With the addition of some quick disconnects, a T and 2" brewing thermometer it can easily and quickly be set up to pump hot wort. Using a ball valve on the pump and the thermometer, you can adjust flow rate of the wort and/or the cooling water so the wort enters your fermenter at the desired temperature for pitching yeast. Much faster than an immersion coil, and much sturdier. Definitely a worthwhile purchase.

After I used this I wished I would have done this long ago. I chilled 5 gallons of brew to 60 degrees in about 7 mins. Best money I have spent on brewing.

This is the best $200 I've spent on any one item. I can bring a 10 gallon boil down to 60° in 15-20 min, basically the time it takes to drain the kettle open wide. It will chill lower if I submerge the chiller in a small bucket of ice due to the fact that it has a copper jacket instead of a vinyl hose. Extremely well built, easy to clean and sanitize, never had a stuck drain (a hop spider helps). I blinged mine out to accommodate a 2" dial thermometer and a flow control valve for the garden hose. With this chiller and valve, I can pinpoint the temp of the wort going into the fermentor. I've actually had to reduce the water in flow so as not to get the wort so cold for pitching ales. Pricey but worth it!
