Equipment and Software / Re: Questions on KettleRIMS build
« on: March 27, 2017, 08:04:18 AM »
I did the same thing. I studied it over and applied it best to my situation. I came up with this. It's a two vessel system with a 52 qt cooler mash tun. Not RIMS or HERMS. Maybe someday, but not for now. Mine is 120v as of now. I will be putting in a 50amp 220v circuit this summer. I built it with this is mind, so it will just be a matter of changing the pigtail, and swapping a couple wires around in the panel and throwing the 220v elements in. Half of work, tops. You can see the temporary wet switches sitting in the shot glass for a test run. They have since been moved to my kettles.

Don't let PID's and SSR's scare you. They are actually pretty simple. I incorporated two of them in my electric build. I bought a couple Cinese ones off Amazon. They had good ratings, so I went for it. so far, so good.
 As far as not dry firing, look into these.

I have one on each of my kettles just above the element.

LAying here in bed right now with SWMBO and she's purusing an old issue of BYO I had laying on the night stand. She's been looking at recipes, and asking questions about some of the equipment and stuff. I'm so proud right now!!

   Stop taking unnecessary effort and put your time and effort into something that matters.

That's precious time I could be using to look for deals on cherry Jolly Ranchers!!!   :o

First I've heard of it, and a quick google doesn't pull up a link.

My bad. I forgot they are now on version 3.3

Just stop that s***, Barry!  There's no advantage to it and it's just one more place you have a chance to screw up!

Well tell me how you really feel!!!  ;D
 
 I'm only doing because, well, because. I figure why let all that yeast go to waste. Plus, I just like having beer related things to do in the evening.  But you do have a valid point, Denny. One more thing for me to screw up.
 
 As for what I''m washing it in, I guess I need to study up on yeast washing. I didn't think there was actual "washing" with any type of chemical involved. I just thought it was the process of letting the yeast settle on top of the trub, move to a new container, and repeat until you are left with basically all yeast.
 Looks like I have some reading to do tonight.

I'm in NE Ohio also. Howland, to be exact. Where you at? I'll have to jump in on that action.
Also curious, that wouldn't happen to be the K-100 Aerodyne you're reffering to, is? Best looking K-Whopper, or truck period for that matter. ever made.

 This is my first time washing yeast. This is US-05 at its second wash. Is it looking right so far? I've never done this so I'm not 100% sure what I'm doing.

is  Although my base approach and technique have always followed Denny's cheap n' easy set-up and process

I like to refer to mine as cheap and overly complicated.

Weazletoe makes such nice toys, er, I mean brewing equipment.  I still remember your old basement hood exhaust photos long time ago.

Thanks, man I really appreciate that.

Actually it's nearly as hands on as a "normal" brewing setup.  The Zymatic or Pico are [probably what you're thinking of.

Very well possible. I tend to assume most of my knowledge than back up with actual facts.
