So today, I started a RIMS build. I basically am just cloning a Brew-Magic, with a few custom touches and upgrades. We started on it today, and managed to get it up and completely tacked together. Waiting on stainless plumbing parts to arrive and some burners to show up.
What you see:
a Lowe's 4500 watt 240v heater, but it will be ran at 110v to yield about 1000 watts
8" 1.5d Stainless nipple
2 x 1.5" Stainless tees
2 x 1.5" to 1/2" Stainless bushings
1.5" to 1" Stainless bushing (to mount the heating element)
1.5" Stainless plug
Also got the boil kettle welded up. Pic's to come....
