There are a few threads to be found if you're looking for a parts list for a thread-together RIMS tube but I thought I'd take a lot of the guesswork and searching out of the picture by just offering a kit of all the SS fittings you'd need.

It doesn't come with an element or RTD, but those are kind of personal choice things anyway. It's based on 1.5" NPT so you can get foldback elements in there without it touching the walls.



Check out brewhardware.com for more details.

If you can get it cheaper somewhere else, let me know.

Looks great.

FYI, the link to the camlocks on that page is broken.

Not pretty, but it will sure work! Its a lot less expensive than the fancy one I just bought.

I was able to source the parts for one with a 6" nipple for cheaper. I imagine an 8" nipple instead wouldn't add more than a few bucks and would've come in a little less than yours. But, that was at a local plumbing store in MI when I was visiting, so it didn't include shipping, etc and of course more of my time.

That seems like a great price! I definitely would've purchased that had I not stumbled across my find.

Looks great! Little bit of a thread jack, but is it okay if the finish on a fold back gets a little scraped inserting it into a 1" fitting?

Great idea to kit it cause it's not that easy for us up north to find those parts.

My temp probe threads are 1/4 not 1/2. An additional bushing would be needed. Just something to think about.

I can sell you the 1/2 to 1/4 bushing.

I heard the NPT RIMS tubes are a PITA to clean. I recommend offering a tri-clamp RIMS tube kit.
