Good point on reusing the rims element and clogging the pump. Interesting to think of turning
it portable.I guess the hermocouple wouldn't be necessary since you're overdriving it for the

Dumb question - is it possible to use a RIMS tube for boiling wort? I'd like to go electric,
but keep it as simple as possible. If I could eliminate all the heating hardware from the brew

I was looking at the compact pump, but with this, how could you go wrong? I was only going to
get one, but decided to get 2 to future proof it and make a 1 tier instead of a 2 tier. Ordered

Since these are DC (direct current) and not AC (alternating current) a simple speed controller

Huge mess to clean up. A couple years ago I made strawberry infused vodka. The jar had a spigot

cut off. T...

Has anyone tried a cone insert in their non-conical fermenters? If one were to fabricate a 60
degree cone to put inside the fermenter, would the yeast settle out in the cone, and let you

I wonder if I could spray on a dry film lubricant (non-stick teflon?) surface to the bottom,
and allow the yeast to slide better. MSC has bondable teflon sheets, but I'm not getting the

It looks like all the parts are stainless - tank, burn chamber, and hx tube. The tank is
magnetic, so I'm assuming the less expensive 400 series stainless, or work hardened 304. We'll
see how far I ge...
