    I have my mash system set up with a home made RIMS tube (copper) and it heats about 1F per
    minute.I have a stainless tube coming from Brewers Hardware and expect that will be more
    efficient - perhaps ...

    I think the PID will do a fine job of switching the element on and off to maintain your temps
    w/o scorching. The key is to tune the system so it doesn't overshoot the temperature. Most PIDs
    have an au...

    [QUOTE=P-J;2581691] I cannot even begin to imagine how you would be able to control the element
    and the pump, the way you want, using it. QUOTE]I'm not following what you mean. There's no

    I've really enjoyed this thread. I have ordered a 20g Mash Tun with RIMS fittings from Stout
    Tanks and Kettles. It'll be here in Jan, so I'm going to start my wiring. This has been very
    helpful. In lo...

    Check it - or drink it.
