Boerderij_Kabouter,

Is this specification for LP propane like you get from Lowes/Home Depot or for natural gas?

This is for low pressure propane (<11 inWC) or natural gas. This assembly will not work with high pressure propane. I will be using it on the hurricane burners with low pressure propane.

RIMS and HERMS many times use electric, whicih is easy to wire to a temp controller, so they are hands off.
Go get a $70 furnace valve and control your gas...

The Honeywell valve they are talking about is a furnace valve. The reason it is expensive is because it has an intermittent pilot and controller which shuts the valve if no ignition is sensed.

But than again, I haven't build or used one and I'm just throwing my thoughts out here for discussion.

The main thing with herms/rims is clairifying worth, and that is by compacting the grainbed. Pumping the other way is totally waste of everything...
Herms/rims has one thing better than the rest... You get a better efficency, bacause of stable temperature and the sirculation, but loose some vital mash ingreedence like yeast nutrient. Stabillity is like the rest.....
The one thing is time savings... Nothing else
Happy brewday!

Im going to agree that I for myself have been doing single fusion mash and the beer that come out of it, many times over again are fabulous, and regarded better than most out there. Just do the yeast pitch properly and fermentation temperature and keep trucking. Why stop, change just to find out that it will not improve to the advantage of wow this was totally that much better than my single mash. It may never really happen. But good luck
