Default Does anyone build a ready to go RIMS setup?

I know that BrewMagic builds their RIMS wizard but that just seems like overkill. Im looking for basically the completed tubes with elements and a small control panel, like the tool box control panel. More or less just hook up hoses plug it in set the temp and go. I already own a Brewmation electric system but the one thing missing from my setup is the RIMS element for mashing. I currently use a 10 gallon cooler If anyone knows of where I can buy a RIMS setup it would be much appreciated! Cheers

I looked hard for something like the Sabco Rims Wizard, but couldn't find anything affordable.

Using tons of info from this site, I built my own "Rims Toolbox". It is toolbox with a pump mounted inside, the rims tube mounted on the back and a PID in the lid. It was fun little project and MUCH less expensive than the Sabco system.

I don't think anywhere, but you could get a pre made RIMS tube and probe from brewers hardware and an element and pid from ebay.

Blichmann has a ready to go external RIMS box coming out in the next few months called the "Tower of Power".

See: http://www.blichmannengineering.com/..._of_POWER.html

Yeah the problem with that product is that it controls the burners and is not electric

The rims for dummies thread is the way to go.

I bought the tri-clamp rims tube from Brewers Hardware, an Auber PID 2362, 25A SSR, type K thermocouple, some terminal blocks, switches and March 809 pump with Poly head.

It wasn't hard to build and all of the resources I used were from this site.
