Can’t wait to wire this up and run my RIMS tube with it.
When I built my el-cheapo Chinese stainless kettle, I knew I wanted a Brewmometer from Blichmann because they are great quality and the weldless mount is bulletproof.
Today I finished making my fake Blichmann kettle by adding a linear flow valve. I realize I am missing a sight glass, but I don’t need one on the HLT for my process. When I lauter, I fly sparge and run off the exact amount I need to achieve my pre-boil volume and then stop. (It is for this reason that I do have a gauge on my boil kettle.) So as long as I have more hot liquor than I need, I will be A-OK.
Now do I need a linear flow valve on the HLT? No, because I use an auto-sparge on my MLT and it regulates the sparge water just fine. But, I had a spare one laying around so I decided I might as well install it somewhere and see how it does.
Quick video to explain the wiring of my RIMS control panel. Please leave any questions you have in the comments of the video.
We got our water report in and we’re quite pleased to say the least. The low alkalinity will make for some very easy brew days, just need a bit of calcium via brewing salts to build the appropriate water profile for the style we’re brewing. Exciting!
Here is a quick video I shot for my dad to show a test firing of our recirculating mash system. This was a water-only test to see how the Auber EZBoil controller would perform. There will definitely be more to come, but this was a great first run.
