    Sorry in advance if already covered.I have been using a 4500 w LD element in my BK and NEVER

  • Posted in thread: RIMS wizard and step mashing on 02-21-2013 at 03:27 AM
    Has anyone had any experience stepping up with a RIMS wizard? Seems it is good for maintaing
    temps (which I can do just fine with my current HERMS setup) but can it effectively raise mash
    temps in a r...

  • Posted in thread: Fresh hops questions on 09-20-2012 at 01:58 AM
    I've always used store-bought hops but a friend has picked some centennial hops for me. Is it
    OK to dry in a plastic bag and then place in a freezer to store? Also, how do you know when the

    Thanks!

    I'm thinking of using one of these but am concerned the plastic paint strainer will not hold up
    to boiling temps. Any comments from those with experience would be appreciated.

    Thanks for the info!!!! I think I will go with the 1700 to be safe and see if stepping is an
    issue.

    Right. Is the 1700W powerful enough to step mash?

    Rheem makes both a stainless 120V 2000W and a 1700W low density element. Any ideas on which one
    would be better for step mashing and preventing scorching with a RIMS tube having a 1.875" i.d.

    Thanks - trying to find 1500w/120v incoloy that will fit in my rims tube. The one from Camco is
    a fold over and won't fit. Looks like I'll stick with the 1500/120 Ni/Cr. Thanks for the info!
