PGD outta the way and grain is crushed.. HLT at 120 , MLT at 100.. The MLT always lags the HLT because my RIMS circuit is only 2200w, while the HLT Element is 5500w.. Hops and Irish moss measured and ready... I'll be doing a 10 gallon batch today so I've got a pile of hops on my little table..

This will also be the first full fermentation in my new ferm chamber.. The beers in the chamber in the pic went through primary in my other unit..

HLT up to 170, MLT at 125.. I've been asked a few times why I have both Herms and Rims circuits on this rig, the no-bs answer is that I couldn't decide and it was just as easy to do both as just one.. The fun part of having both is that I can swap over to HERMS at this point and create a much greater temp differential for getting up to strike temps..

Just gave the MLT a little power boost with the Herms Circuit.. HLT is holding dead on 180F, MLT is at 155 on it's way to a set point of 162.7.. Should take about 10 more minutes to hit set point then stabilize..

OK... Mashed in.. Temps right on the nose.. Beautiful thing about working with the BCS-460 and Beersmith.. Once you have your equipment profiles dialed in sticking the temps is a breeze.. On to the mash.. Only trick for the next few minutes is to carefully watch my RIMS flow rate and output to make sure I am not sticking or overheating the wort through the RIMS..

I wanted a little more fermentable wort on this batch so I dropped my mash temp back to 150f.. I find myself without any iodine today so I may extend the mash to 90 minutes just to make sure everybody is converted nicely..

Here is a pic of the flashy lights on the manual override control panel and a screen print of the Main Control Center in the BCS-460..
