When it comes to beer dispensing systems, having a reliable cooling system is crucial to ensure that the beer stays cold and refreshing. One popular option is the cold plate chiller, which is a thin-profile block made of aluminum with stainless steel tubing embedded in it. In this article, we will explore the benefits of using a cold plate chiller and how it works.

How Does a Cold Plate Chiller Work?

The cold plate chiller is designed to cool beer as it flows through the plate. The plate is covered with ice, which helps to cool the beer to a refreshing temperature. Depending on the size of the cold plate, it can be used to serve different amounts of beer.

To set up a cold plate chiller, you will need the following elements: a cold plate chiller, an abundance of crushed ice, a beer keg, a CO2 tank, and a coupler for connection. Once you have these elements, you can follow these simple steps to set up your cold plate chiller:

  1. Make sure your faucet is shut
  2. Attach the keg coupler to your beer keg
  3. Turn on the CO2 tank and adjust the pressure to the right range
  4. Open the faucet on the tank
  5. After the keg’s been connected, tap it and dispense a small amount of beer into the chiller before adding ice
  6. Fill the chiller with crushed ice
  7. Open the drain plug and keep it that way while your chiller is in use
  8. Let the ice sit there for 10 minutes and then it’s ready to use!

Maintaining Your Cold Plate Chiller:

It's important to regularly check on the ice condition of your chiller to ensure that it's functioning properly. If the ice is melting too quickly or the beer is not cold enough, you may need to adjust the ice or the CO2 pressure. Additionally, it's important to keep the chiller clean and free of debris to ensure optimal performance.

Choosing the Right Cold Plate Chiller for You:

When choosing a cold plate chiller, it's important to consider the size of the chiller and the number of kegs it can serve. Additionally, you'll want to consider the type of event or setting in which you'll be using the chiller.
