40 Plate Wort Chiller

  1. What do I use to sanitize both the chiller and the pump?
  2. Is there anyway to prevent the hop pellet residue from getting into the carboy?
  3. Can I recirculate the wort back into my pot and let the residue settle out before putting it in the carboy?

Never used a wort chiller before - always used an immersion chiller


  1. Run star-san or boiling wort through your pump, plate chiller and hoses
  2. Use a hop-spider or hop basket. Commercially available examples: http://www.stainlessbrewing.com/Straine … _c_18.html
  3. Yes.
