I'm scoping out the parts list for a RIMS build (so as to gauge cost and such), and can't seem to find any ideally sized project boxes/enclosures. The medium aluminum enclosure from...

Forgive me for dredging this six-month old thread up, and for the novice question, but what is the structure in your diagram between the RIMS outlet and the PID panel?

As it turns out, it appears I don't (and didnt use one during the last batch). I had read someplace online that the suction from the pump could cause the grain bed to compact, which could cause a...

Results were pretty sub-par for my test batch (66.9% efficiency), though I'm almost positive that was due to my failure to take the deadspace in the mash tun into account. By the time the void under...

Hmm thanks - Would it work to just swap in Cascade (matching AA contributions from the scheduled Belma) for the 5 min and flameout additions? Should I swap out the 10 minute Belma addition as well?

Shallow grain beds

I currently use a 10 gallon (round) cooler for mashing, but am toying with the idea of upgrading to a 15 gallon kettle mash tun. The last brew I did in the cooler (a ten gallon beer at 1.056)...

You can also get 5/16" and even 3/8" barb-FFL/MFL fittings. I grabbed a few from MoreBeer and a few online sources, and use them in my system a lot. Makes for a leak-free system :)
