I plan on building a RIMS setup this year. Taking little steps as I go and funds become available.
I want to order all the Quick disconnects or Tri-Clamps in one shot to avoid additional shipping costs.
I want to whirlpool chill my wort. Can I whirlpool through the RIMS tube? Or do I need to remove the connections and hook up directly to the pump?
I currently do not have a dedicated brew stand with hard plumbing. That will probably not happen for some time.
Currently I do BIAB, so I will just recirculate the mash with my pump.
Later I will add the RIMS tube (ala SawDustGuy's). Continue with BIAB.
Eventually add element to BK.
Depending how things are working out a Mashtun.
