Sous Vide Mashing
« on: April 14, 2021, 11:13:14 PM »
I just read in the mag about one of the members using a Sous Vide to process the mash.  Has anyone else explored this process and if you have I would like some details

I do an overnight sous vide mash.  Heat the strike water with the sous vide and stir in the grain.  (I do BIAB). I put the sous vide in a hop spider and go to bed.

You tube videos are out there. Fastest is to set the sous vide to strike temp when you go to bed. Then you're ready to mash in when you wake. I now use a large hop spider for the sous vide, but in the past just used a wire cooling rack to keep the biab bag away from the recirculater. I mash in a large cooler.

It's so easy that I cant justify a RIMS or HERMS build even though they are sexier.
