Description

  • Built-in pumps and digital controllers
  • Control multiple fermentation temperatures independently
  • Fill with 20% glycol solution for optimal chilling performance
  • Cold crash with good insulation
  • Perfect complement to BrewBuilt X-Series Conicals

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
  • Length 2: Barb of 2nd bulkhead (OUT) to cooling system inlet

Note: The new model includes a sightglass that is connected via two plastic Duotight tees.  The tees can be attached onto the push tubes on the front of the unit. The sight glass can be fitted between the two tees and plugs need to be inserted on the outward facing openings. 

Warning: Do not set the reservoir temperature controller lower than 28°F (-2ºC). Running the unit below this temperature may negatively affect the unit's efficiency and has the potential to freeze beer which may impact the finished beer's flavor.
