Posted in thread: Stuck mash, Biab bags and recirculating on 02-20-2015 at 09:38 PM
I had the same set up. Mine had an inner basket that I drilled larger holes in. I had to
restrict the flow on the pump to about 75%, but still had problems with recirculation. Then I
purchased a bag f...

The Blichmann auto sparge looks like it might work well in you mash tun to control the level.
Good luck on the basement and congrats on the new addition to the family.

Steve Matheson created the Brauduino which is basically a Braumeister clone using an arduino. I
copied and modified the code for my system which is a two vessel system very similar to what is

I'm using a spa panel as my GCFI. It is about $80 from Lowes. I have it set up as an extension

I sparge only to get to my initial boil volume.I'm lazy and don't calculate grain absorption. I
just start with 7 gal. of water and when I'm done mashing, I see how much is in the boil kettle

A 2-vessel e-rims system is what I built: first batch with this system came out great. The
system started out as an e-BIAB system and can easily be converted back, or converted to
3-vessel. This cam...

There is a 1" copper male pipe fitting that is silver soldered to the bottom of the mash tun.
It is also reinforced with a copper washer that is silver soldered to the bottom side of the
mash tun. The...

is over the wort returns to the brew kettle through the pump which is now turned off. It
doesn't return t...

I've been following your build. Have you had a run of the first system yet? How did it go?
