Crash cooling mash


Recommended Posts

We are now finalizing  a large capacity crash cooling system design for whiskey mash with a closed loop glycol cooler and vertical shell and tube heat exchanger. Anyone interested in the concept, let me know.

Good afternoon sir!  My name is Devin Flickinger from Hook and Flask Still Works in Carlisle, PA.  We briefing spoke 2 years ago as we were doing our build out.  We have been distilling for 2 plus years now and are looking into a chiller system to recycle water for our 2 condensors and possibly our mash tun.  Could we connect in the near future to talk about cooling options?

 

Thank you,

I am interested in crash cooling either a 500 gallon or 1000 gallon still

The stand alone Hybrid Cooler and shell and tube exchanger start out at amount $20k. This will get the mash down to 105F in summer, colder from Fall thru Spring. Additional cooling would need to be done in the fermenters by a chiller if needed.

You can reduce the size of the hybrid cooler by setting up a two stage cooling by cutting in the chiller sooner running with with a chilled water reservoir. It all depends how much chiller you need during summer. The Hybrid Cooler will get nearly triple the cooling in off seasons, so if you are not running a chiller 24/7, it may be cost effective to integrate the chiller in the crash cooling, but only when needed, so you can keep your power consumption at a minimum. For a 1000 Gal system, this is a sizable savings which we can determine for you. The Hybrid Cooler will pay for itself in a few years from power savings.
