you can order in advance with confidence from suppliers like brew-uk, however i dont think the glycol chiller is getting shipped to any UK suppliers as the cost of an ebay shelf chiller is a fraction of the cost and more than ample for the job of controlling a single fermentor, tho if you plan on more conicals a standard maxi chiller will need an afternoons tinkering and modding to accommodate a 2nd and 3rd etc..

Make sure you have a chiller organised before you buy one, as they are pretty much useless without one.

The glycol chiller has been put back until November afaik. A ss brewtech conical + a maxi cooler will do the job for a lot less. I have a brewbucket fitted with a cooling coil and can get down to 4 degrees easily with the maxi
