Similar to the original triple feed immersion chiller, the JaDeD Hydra™, this concentric version is constructed of the same amount of copper as the Hydra but in a concentric design, allowing for a lower overall coil profile. The Concentric Hydra™ is perfect for any brewer wanting the speed and efficiency of a Hydra™ but constrained by the level of wort available to cover chilling coils either due to space taken up by a heating element for electric brewing, smaller typical batch sizes or other constraints.
For electric brewing, most brewers combine the Concentric Hydra™ with the ElectriChair™ in order to reap the benefits of this efficient chiller while still protecting the heating element of their setup
This chiller is faster than most plate chillers and will chill a 5 gallon batch from boiling to 68F in just 3 minutes using only 18 gallons of 58F tap water!
Three 25' sections of 3/8" outside diameter copper, working in parallel for a total of 75' of copper coil chilling power.
The design of the Concentric Hydra™ allows you to have the speed of a plate chiller and the ease of sanitation and maintenance of an immersion chiller!
No need for labor intensive backflushing, sanitizing and baking of your plate chiller to limit the possibility of costly brew infections. All you need to do with the Concentric Hydra is put it in the boil for the last 10 minutes and rinse it off after your wort is chilled. No more worrying about hops and cold break clogging things up! There are no hidden extra costs required to reach the specified chilling times, just put the chiller in your pot, crank up the water to full blast and give it a stir. No need to spend an EXTRA $200 to $250 for a food grade pump, fittings and hoses that are needed for a plate chiller to achieve advertised chill times.
Are you concerned about the burn off of your volatile hop oils? The Concentric Hydra™ chills the ENTIRE boil to below 140F in 45 seconds!
The solid brass garden hose fittings are threaded onto soldered 1/2" MPT fittings on the chiller with food safe Teflon tape. The soldered connections avoid common leaking issues typically seen with compression fittings.
