  • Posted in thread: RIMS Brewers Please sound off...Mill Settings on 09-19-2014 at 04:31 PM
    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
    MLT, stu...

    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
    sparge with a sp...

    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
    process. Ev...

    1.65*32/5=10.56 neglecting 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
    volume measureme...
