Is there a pre manufactured HERMS setup that anyone is selling? I thought I remembered a post a while back where there was one that was being used for test batches by some micro brewerys. Price is no object.

I think you're referring to the Brew Magic by Sabco. Dogfish Head brewery uses one for a pilot system

I just watched the 25 minute infomercial on it. Words cannot describe how awesome that would be.

I believe Stone Brewery uses a fully digital level 1 from B3 for sample batches.

I really have to question whether or not you really understand what it is you are looking for?

You specifically call for a HERMS based system but assert that the RIMS system is what you were looking for. While they do both facilitate the making of beer and stabilize mash temps I can;t help to wonder if you really know "why" you'd want the Sabco.

I am not trying to sway you from one, they are in fact awesome but, it sure is a chunk of change for something you don't seem to understand.

Early tax return or hidden vacation money burning a hole in his pocket.
Money no object, some people have too much money.
Question I have will the bier taste better from a $6,000 plus
unit vs a home built unit?
There are some very ingenious, intelligent and talented members on this forum. They can create
brewing systems that are a lot less exspensive
besides better built as far as i've seen over the years.

You guys crack me up. I'm perfectly happy with my 5 and 10 gallon igloo mash tuns. Money is no object because its not mine. I have a friend that has never brewed a batch before and is talking about starting a brew pub. So I was just looking for the most expensive system to suggest as a "starter system".

I don't really know the difference between HERMS and RIMS because I've never bothered to research it. I'll probably never get something that nice. Its not that those systems aren't worth the money I just don't mind the work and variance between batches. It's kind of like the fact that I have a wood splitter but still split wood by hand sometimes.
