    ABOUT ME

  • ShadeTree Homebrewers
  • I've been home brewing for about 15 years now. Started out with a kit bought at a store. English Brown Ale I believe. I was hooked.
    Brewed extract kits for many years. Started formulating recipes using extracts. Then dove into all grain. That was the old 5 gallon bucket with bunches and bunches of holes drilled into the bottom of it for a lauter tun. I got out of home brewing for a couple of years and then got my interest rekindled when my dad bought me a all grain equipment kit from Northern Brewers for Christmas. I have been going strong again ever since. Currently working on building a RIMS system.

    Just to update.I have now brewed 5 batches on this rig.The heating element was kicking my butt.

    element back ...

    I tried just plan water and it heated just fine. I tested it before I brewed. I also checked it
    after I brewed while I was washing hot water and then StarSan thru the rig. It will heat plain
    water. I ...

    issues, but nothing I can't tweak.For some reason the RIMS heater would hold a temp in the mash

    Did you get the plans for the RIMS tube somewhere or did you make it yourself? Was it cheaper
    to build than SS?I rolled my own on the rims tube. I looked at a friends and read the RIMS for
    dummies thr...

    Will you show your RIMS tube in more detail? All I have seen around is SS ones. Any drawbacks
    to having your system hard-plumbed? Maybe there is something that you will have to do without
    or a configu...

    I like the copper plumbing. What's the middle keg covered with?Actually it is one of those
    rubber coated kegs. I got it for free so I went with it.I am hoping that it will act as
    insulation to help ho...
