The BrewBuilt CoolStix™ is a revolutionary cooling solution for 7 to 14 gallon conical fermenters wtih tri-clamp fittings. It is easy to clean, easy to setup, and cools quickly and efficiently. The CoolStix™ uses a submersible pump to circulate cooling solution and a digital temperature controller to regulate flow. When the controller's temperature probe detects that the fermentation temp is getting too hot, it will power on the submersible pump to run ice water or glycol through the CoolStix™. Once the temperature stabilizes, the controller will shut off the pump and stop circulation.
A cold water source is needed to provide the cooling solution. For maintaining ale temperatures, a cooler or bucket of ice water is sufficient in most cases. For maintaining lagering temperatures or cold crashing, we recommend the Icemaster 100 Glycol Chiller.
Please note: the kit does not include a 1.5" Tri-Clamp and Gasket.
