Single Vessel RIMS???
 
Sounds odd... I know. Essentially, my SWMBO wants me to get out of brewing but I am not going to stop. However, I have agreed to downgrade my system to clear up some space. So, instead of a 3 vessel BCS-460 controlled RIMS system I was wondering if it would be possible to have a single vessel RIMS system, electric controlled (not necessarily by BCS). I have no idea if and how this would work because it just came to my mind a few hours ago.

Help, advice, or pointing me to established threads on the topic are needed. Cheers! :mug:

you could make a braumeister clone, or a BIAB rig with a rims tube or just an urn and BIAB with it. The problem with the second option is you still have to work out how you would boil, if you have a fired kettle then you could use the rims tube to do the mash and then remove the bag and direct fire the kettle, there are a lot of options you could go with. By the way show SWMBO the price of a braumeister and say that you will have to get that, then maybe she will let you keep your brewery the way it is.

Just tell her she can keep her 7/8ths of the closets and medicine cabinet and you are going to keep your brewing rig. :D
