Default Using MLT/RIMS to make chicken stock

Has anyone here attempted this before? False bottom, precise temperature control, large cooking vessel. Seems like it would work but I worry about all the fat and floating debris somehow getting into a nook or cranny and never coming out. I don't think I would risk running the stock through my plate chiller without a pre-filter, but I think using an MLT/RIMS would be easy enough to clean afterwards.

I use my HLT for cooking Sous vide but I don't think I would actually let any fatty foods touch the pot.

Id be cool with it touching anything stainless. I fear that plastic will smell like chicken forever

Yeah, I guess I should've mentioned my MLT is a keggle, so there would only be stainless touching the stock. I guess a good long soak and circulation with hot PBW should eliminate any stubborn fat right?

Pbw is a caustic based cleaner good at breaking away ionic organic matter from steel. However a surfactant cleaner would be better for cleaning the nonionic fats. Once the fat is gone then a rinse in PBW would be ideal. This conversation is getting serious but is your pump and hosing steel as well?

My MLT stinks to high heaven sometimes because I usually wait a day or 2 before emptying it.

A thorough rinseout followed by an overnight full soak in StarSan (probably less diluted than what normally is called for) takes care of it every time.

Yeah, you're right. I'd have to run some kind of soap through and then PBW. Good news is I have a SS chugger pump and 1/2" stainless hard plumbed system. Otherwise I don't even think I'd consider it.
