To add legitimacy (which seems to have already happened) to the Arduino / Android build, I figured I'd chime in.

I have a two-vessel Arduino controlled RIMS setup (although I'm currently tearing it apart as I switch to HERMS...). I then used a WIFI shield on the Arduino, and exposed a REST API for control. The Arduino can be triggered to run setpoint and PID control with the temperature probe in the RIMS tube as the feedback. It can also be triggered to run the pump without heating elements active for transferring between vessels.

I then wrote an Android application using PhoneGap (Cordova) which interacts with REST API of the Arduino. This allows me to have a nice touch interface to set up and control the brews. I use my Nexus 7 tablet on brew day, and I designed the interface to work best at that resolution / screen size.

Let me know if there's anything I can help with, although, it seems like you're well on your way. I was thinking of posting my code to github at some point for anyone else to use / improve.
