    For sale is an absolutely banging wort chiller that I purchased from @Aaron Higgins here on the forum.

    Sadly, it doesn't fit in my Robobrew as I forgot to take into account the top ring which holds the malt pipe for sparging... Gutted.

    Aaron kindly sold me this work of art for £90 so I'm happy to see it go for the same.

    Dimensions:

    W: 300mm
    H (from bottom of coil stack to the top of the in/out pipes): 410mm
    H: (coil stack) 200mm

    Cheers guys.

    Man, that's a beast. You could cool a nuclear reactor with that monster!

    Words can’t describe how gutted I was today after finding it was too big for my vessel...

    Aaron has done such a good job with this. If I had his abilities, I’d be making them to order!

    I just bought 10m of 10mm copper pipe and a couple of tees tonight to double the chilling capacity of my existing HBS chiller. Haven't had the guts to start cutting pipe yet, but now you show me Aaron's handiwork it sets the bar high for future soldering efforts, for when I'm confident to take on the challenge.

    That is a nice piece of work.

    @Ghillie, I reckon it's even worth buying a bigger pot to fit that chiller.

    Negative. Happy with my Robobrew and will keep using that until it packs up. Then likely buy another.

    That is a thing of beauty. I've been toying with the idea of knocking up something similar - I'm impressed he managed four(?) coils - @Ghillie any chance of a close up of the four way split joint thing? I'm intrigued to know how this was engineered...?

    I’d love to take some photos for you, but I’ve already repacked the unit ready for posting. I’m sure @Aaron Higgins may be able to elaborate some on how it was done.

    Sorry about this, I’d love to get photos for you but it was a bit of a task getting it packaged well like I received it.

    Google “bullet manifold” for a 4-way split.
    22mm to 4x10mm would be good.

    Thanks for that, just need to wait until the end of the month and I'm all over this. Cheers!

    Price knocked down to £80.

    It's available here also, bidding starting at £50 so someone may well get a bargain:
