Description

The BrewBuilt Universal CoolStix is a revolutionary cooling solution for just about any homebrew fermenter with a flat surface. 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. Capable of maintaining the temperature of 10 gallon batch fermentations. A 1-3/8" hole will need to be cut into the lid of the fermenter for the CoolStix grommet, and a 13/32" hole will be needed for the thermowell grommet.

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 lager temperatures, we recommend the Icemaster 100 Glycol Chiller.

Much better option than a swamp cooler
Blake Umphress on Oct 7, 2022
I need to keep my fermentation cool and don't have the space for a large chest cooler. I'm hoping this will do the trick.

Can u use with 300l speidel fermenter?
Brian on Feb 6, 2021
BEST ANSWER: So I can say for the speidel, but I can say it does seem universal enough. I use it on the catalyst conical. There are some issues though. I would request extra thermowell grommets as I've gone through 5 or 6 in a year+.

Not knowing your chilling setup, is say you have to keep an eye on that. I don't have a glycol chiller, and that would probably be a nice thing to have. What I do have though is a small cooler that I fill with chilled water and then swap ice packs of as needed. It definitely does the job but there are times when I forget to check and the fermentation overpowers the cooling properties of the set up. I've had situations where my fermenter has hit the high 70's

Works great for Fermentation, not so great to Cold Crash
On a 60L Speidel fermenter, was easy to cut open the lid, add the thermowell and stir about 8-10" apart on either side of the center hole similar to product shots.

No problem controlling fermentation at 54F in a 65-70F garage un-insulated using a 5K BTU glycol chiller with 48qt cooler at 36F

Insulated the silicone tubing, used a 1/2" yoga mat to wrap around the fermenter, and tried to cold crash. Set glycol system to 33F, will not drop below 45F in a 55-60F garage.

May need to improve the insulation, but neither Speidel or Moreover make an insulation jacket for the coolstix.

I figure I might need a second set of six for one fermentor and loop the cooling in series with insulation to make cold crashing viable.

A little disappointing that it won't cold crash. I am concerned when my garage hits 80-90F in the summer, will I even be able to hold 54F to ferment? I wonder.
