Cool your fermenting must or wine using this weldless, easy-to-install, 304 stainless steel cooling plate that can be inserted into the lid of any Variable Volume Fermenter. Cold water or glycol is recirculated through the cooling plates thereby reducing the temperature of your ferment.
By threading our thermowell (FE616) into the extra 1/2" female coupler that comes on every MoreWine Variable Volume Fermenter and inserting the probe from our digital controller (FE610) you can use a digital controller to automatically control temperature. The controller turns a pump on every time the temperature rises above your set-point, sending coolant through the plate.
To build these units we take the stock cooling plates and slide, bored-out, male-threaded couplers half-way down the feed tubes and weld them in place. You drill two 1 1/16 to 1 1/8" holes into the lid. We provide two gaskets and nuts that thread on both sides of the couplers securing the plate in place.
