I almost have my wooden rig finished, 90% of it is made from lumber I had leftover from a recent home improvement project, eventually I plan on covering the outside with tongue and groove pine. The keggles are done except for sightglasses, which I will probably order today along with the march 809 and qd's. Could someone tell me what HERMS and RIMS stand for, ive deduced that they have something to do with recirculating the mash. And while your at it, I would also like to know what SWMBO stands for, again have deduced that it is a reference to the significant other, but cant figure out the ackronym

Descriptions & references, hope this helps mate:

-------------

From www.urbandictionary.com

SWMBO:

Abbreviation for "She Who Must Be Obeyed"; used as shorthand for wife, girlfriend, etc. Usually pronounced "swim-bo".

The term originates from the H. Rider Haggard novel, "She" (first published 1886). The character Ayesha, known as She-who-must-be-obeyed, the Queen of Death, the White Goddess,of the lost city of Kôr who rules her kingdom with terror, She is the very image of the Femme Fatale. To disobey her or to scorn her is to earn & receive instantaneous death.

---------------------

From http://www.homebrewtalk.com/wiki/index.php/RIMS#RIMS

Types and components of recirculating mash systems:

RIMS:

RIMS stands for Recirculation Infusion Mash System. This refers to a recirculating mash system in which the recirculated wort is passed over direct heat. The direct heat may be applied by an electric heating elment suspended in a tube after the pump. It may also be applied via direct heat under a metal mash tun (this would be called a direct fired RIMS to distinguish it from the previously mentioned version). In just about all RIMS systems, the pump operates constantly during the mash, and the heat (flame or electric) is cycled off and on to maintain the desired mash temperature. Common heating elements used in home-built RIMS systems are home hot water heater elements encased in a copper pipe with an inlet and outlet.

HERMS:

HERMS stands for Heat Exchanged Recirculating Mash System. In a HERMS system, the wort is passed through the heat exchanger, usually a copper manifold, that is suspended in hot liquid. Usually the hot liquor tank is used for convenience since water will be used for sparge afterwards. The most accurate and preferred method of mash temp control is inserting the temperature controller's sensor inline with the wort at the exit of the heat exchanger. The controller will then cycle HLT heating on and off to keep the wort returning to the mash tun at your setpoint.

How does one go about "earning" the right to an ackronym? Anyway, getting back to something relevant, as long as my pump is below the fluid level, do I need to do anything special to prime it? Seems to me like the valve on the outflow side would need to be cracked to bleed off any air in the system
