Description

The IceMaster Max 2 is designed to cool fermentations in small vessels or barrels. It can be used with any vessel/fermenter/tank/barrel that has a glycol jacket or submersed cooling snake/coil/rod. This chiller features 2 built-in submersible pumps with independent digital temperature controllers, allowing you to control the temperature of 2 separate fermentation or storage vessels at once. Each digital controller includes a thermal probe that should be inserted into a thermal well in your vessel or can be taped to the outside of the vessel if you don't have a thermal well. The digital controller then measures the temperature of your tank and turns the submersible pump on or off to cool the liquid in your vessel to the desired set temperature. 

Compatibility
The Max 2 can be used with any fermenter that has a built-in cooling jacket or a submersed cooling coil. It works well as the cooling source for the following:

  • Speidel - Speidel tanks with optional cooling jackets.   
  • Barrels - If you use our barrel snake. This can be particularly attractive for a white wine ferment in a barrel.

Capacity
It is always difficult to determine exactly how many tanks can be chilled at one time as it depends on what is happening in each tank, how the tank is insulated, and what the ambient temperature is. Cold stabilizing always requires the most energy and requires well insulated tanks. We are currently experimenting with capacities but can provide this rough guide to get you started.  

1 - 40 Gallon Tank or Barrel
2 - 10-20 Gallon Tanks

Set Up
In order to hook up the IceMaster to your fermenter or tank's cooling system, you will need 2 lengths of tubing. All tubing connections should be secured with hose clamps.

  • Length 1: Barb of 1st bulkhead (IN) to cooling system outlet

The price is the greatest incentive for this chiller. Also having the pumps and temperature controllers included is a huge savings. I plan on using this unit with SS Brewtech Chronicals, and it is a seamless match.

Because I need to chill.... a couple of conicals...

What is the decibel rating for this unit under load? Is is louder than a typical mini-fridge?
Jason Amsden on May 3, 2020
Are there going to be wheels available for this?

BEST ANSWER: At this time we do not have plans to add caster options for this unit. I will pass your question along to our development team so they can get started on it. Cheers!
Can this be used with immersion chiller to cool wort after boil?
Mark Ingham on Mar 20, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We do not recommend using this to chill hot wort. The liquid coming out of your heat exchanger will be too hot for the compressor to handle and will burn out the machine quickly. We can recommend using the glycol to cool down a tank or bucket full of water that you can recirculate through your wort chiller. This will stop the chiller from being overwhelmed and will still save you water along the way.
Can this unit present Fahrenheit values?
Jason Amsden on May 3, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes it can be switched from Celsius to Fahrenheit in the controllers' digital menus.
Will this work with the SS Brewtech Brew Buckets?
Anthony on Apr 2, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes. This glycol chiller will work with any fermenter that has an internal chilling coil or a jacket.
Will this chiller allow me to Lager a brew in my SS Brewtech conical with FTS lid?
Thomas S on Jul 1, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hi Tom - the cooling capacity is greatly dependent on the ambient temperature, volume of the fermentation, and whether the fermenter is insulated with neoprene or other material. With that in mind, at 75°F ambient temperature with neoprene insulation, the Max 2 can cold crash one 1 BBL tank, so it should be fine maintaining lagering temperatures for your conical, assuming it's below 1 BBL in size.
