    Yeah, I would say just take another reading in a few days if you really want to know if it's
    done.If you were expecting it to get lower and did the single mash infusion at 153, you might
    try 148-150 n...

    As far as volume goes, I'm not real sure how BeerSmith is getting the 18qt of strike water, but
    it seems like it would be a fairly thin mash in this case.Just going with kind of a "standard"
    1.25qt pe...

    I use a light crystal malt (EBC150) but make a 5 gallon batch and use around 9lb of base and
    around 1lb of crystal, so my ratio is about as high as yours, if not higher. I definitely get
    the malt, bod...

    What sort of crystal did you try? I was looking for more of a McEwans-type fruit flavor in a
    wee heavy and used 1/2lb crystal 120 and 1/2lb crystal 80 (16lb base malt). That + Wyeast Irish
    Ale = proba...

    Trub is trub, whether it's in primary or secondary. May consider cold-crashing before bottling
    and / or running through one of those really fine nylon bags on your way from whatever vessel
    you have in...

    It really is a "if I can do it anyone can" deal...especially with all the info available on
    this site to help!

    The box is set up mainly with a pass-thru for the pump, wired to the toggle switch (vs
    unplugging and plugging in). The PID only fires the heater.

    It's taken a while (was waiting a while for wiring help), but I have my RIMS up and running. I
    figured I would update this post in case anyone came across it for a hopefully thorough
    detailing of my R...

    It can be, depending on your system and your process. When I was using a cooler for a mash tun,
    if I pre-heated the mash tun then I needed to set my strike water for 15 warmer than my target
    mash tem...
