Description

The BrewBuilt CoolStix is a revolutionary cooling solution for carboys. 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.

For a complete kit with all the necessary pieces, check out the BrewBuilt CoolStix for Carboys with Pump Kit.

I was looking for a slim, cost effective way to regulate my fermenter temp.

Because I have the cool stix for my catalyst fermenter, it worked so well with my home made chiller, I wanted to extend the process to my carboys during aging.

Works very well, but dry-hopping and seal could be better
Works well, especially with an inkbird temp controller. Was able to maintain 65 degrees during hot norcal summers.

Say goodby to easy dry-hopping after initial fermentation. For dry hopping I removed the blow off tube and used a small funnel to add pelitized hops, was a mess.

Also the carboy cover doesn't seal well, i used the tapered seal inside the silicone cover with some pipe clamps and worked perfectly.
Works well, especially with an Inkbird temp controller.

Keeping my brew cool!
Working with my InkBird controller, my beer has been fermenting happily for a week, varying no more than 2 degrees (F) the entire time, despite the outdoor temperature swings.

CoolStix
I like it and I hate it. Before, I put the stopper in and ran a blow-off or air lock and I was off to the races. The problem with this thing is the carboy hood. The holes in the hood are too big for just about everything that has to go through them. I was able (after initial setup) to wrap the CoolStix, thermowell, and blow-off tubing with teflon tape to make them large enough to seal the holes in the hood. I am using a small cooler that I got at Walmart. I drilled two holes in the front of it to accommodate the tubing, added enough water for the pump to pick it up and am using frozen water bottles as my cold source. If you use ice, you'll be constantly emptying the melted water. I purchased the whole setup with the Inkbird controller which works as advertised.
