I'm still setting up for RIMS... Have all the stuff but not in a working system yet. Part of it
was getting a mill and dialing it in (MM2-2.0). I started at .032 and that was too tight for my

You didn't say how you are sanitizing the oxygen wand, maybe that is the source of infection?If
you are using starsan or similar I would switch to heat sterilization for that component.

Go to a 2" TC Still Dragon setup, they're nice.

A 2000W element loads your 20A circuit to a little over 80%. You aren't supposed to go over

A 5500W 240V element will work fine on 120V except you'll only get 1375W from it. You can
safely pull that from a standard 15A outlet as well.

The heated volume of liquid is larger in HERMS than RIMS so with the same heat input stepping
will take longer.Most people control only HLT.

That would work fine.

I love and use brewtarget too. I also batch sparge. I don't understand your question. In the
mash you add a sacc. rest then a sparge, it doesn't matter to the software the process you

32 was kind of a s.w.a.g. as I didn't know your grains. See Here. "Most" steeping grains like
crystal/caramel malts have already undergone conversion during the malting/kilning OR roasting

1.65*32/5=10.56 neglecting efficiency...at 75% about 8 points. That's a good part of the way
towards the error. The rest from the gravity potential of the honey maybe? Accuracy of the
