Thanks guys. Some good ideas to look into. I haven't priced out a RIMS system or electric (and

It's been a long time since I've posted here. Mostly I've been happily brewing away and have
made a lot of beer I'm happy with. But I'm starting to get the itch to improve my system. It
just feels ine...
