Keep your fermentation temperature in check with the BrewBuilt Universal CoolStix for flat-lid fermenters! Just about any homebrew fermenter with a flat lid can be modified to work with the Universal CoolStix. We especially like it with the Speidel 60L Plastic Fermenter or a simple 6-gallon bucket fermenter. Temperature control is one the most important aspects of a healthy, happy fermentation. When your fermenting beer gets too hot, the yeast will likely impart off-flavors that can easily overwhelm the taste of your finished beer. The Universal CoolStix is a revolutionary cooling solution for up to 10 gallon batch fermentations -- it is easy to clean, easy to setup, and cools quickly and efficiently. To install, simply drill out a 1-3/8" hole into the lid of your fermenter for the CoolStix grommet, and a 13/32" hole for the thermowell grommet.

You will also need a cold water source to provide the cooling solution. For maintaining ale temperatures, a cooler or bucket of ice water is sufficient in most cases. For maintaining lager temperatures, we recommend the Icemaster 100 Glycol Chiller.

Good within design limitations
This chiller seems well made and is adaptable to myriad fermenters with a bit of ingenuity. However, being just a 1" cylinder that won't be fully immersed in all probability, the amount of surface area in contact with the beer will be small compared to chilling coils. Testing in a 5-gallon Corny keg which is about 2/3rds full with 75F water, I set my Stasis Glycol Chiller to 50F. Using a laser thermometer, the temperature differential of the liquid entering the keg vs exiting the keg was only 2 to 2.5 degrees Fahrenheit. So, it's carrying some heat out, for sure, but at a slow rate. It will do the job in my basement where temperatures are already lower, as I will use this only for ales which I ferment in a Blichmann Cornical, so the chilling needs aren't too extreme. I wouldn't expect to be able to cold crash with this device.

I purchased this already anticipating these limitations, so I am still satisfied. So, five stars for doing what it is designed to do.

Works great
I drilled holes in my Fast Ferment. I am going through a lot of ice so I am going to try and incorporate some copper coils next time.
