Description

The BrewBuilt CoolStix is a revolutionary cooling solution for the Speidel 30L plastic fermenter. 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.

This kit includes all the necessary hardware to set up and start using the CoolStix with a Speidel 30L Plastic Fermenter (FE715). 

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.

  • CoolStix for Speidel 30L (GLY5160)
  • Speidel Replacement Spigot (FE785)

Not long enough
Does not reach very far in a 5 gallon batch of beer, so it couldn't reach lagering temperatures as desired. Temps hung at around 60F even when glycol chiller was set to 32F. Other conicals with cooling coils easily cool down to ~38F because they reach farther down in the fermenter.

It is still useful for helping to maintain a constant temperature, but again, not nearly as well as other conical fermenters with their cooling kits.

Good Product That Could Be Better
CoolStix for Speidel fermenters works as advertised, keeping fermenting homebrew at a desired temperature. The included temperature controller is easy to use, just insert the probe into the CoolStix thermowell, set the temp, and plug in your chiller and attach coolant lines. While it does keep temperatures in check, do not expect this unit to rapidly chill your brew. The small surface area of the cylinder which contains coolant means it can take many hours to chill to pitching temperature. This is obviously not an issue if you can completely chill first in the boil kettle, but could be an issue when brewing lagers in the summer and ground water temps are too high to completely pre-chill the wort. A chiller coil with more surface area would be an improvement. A three-piece airlock works fine with this unit, but the stem of S-shaped airlocks is too small, making an airtight connection impossible without replacing the grommet. One last observation is that the push-in connectors which attach the coolant lines are quite fragile and break easily if you are not careful. MoreBeer did quickly send me 2 replacements when I broke 1 of the connectors. Great customer service, as always. Overall I am satisfied with the product and currently using 2 of them. Reasonably priced.
