Had a look. Not sure its for me. Might be better to stay with what I know. Looks like it would work, just a bit much for me I think.

OK So I currently have 2 Rims systems (each with 2.2KW hooked up in a series) with 500L of water being pumped around graphing the temp change just for fun.

Now just a few things to consider:

I plan on running three Rims in a series. (2/3rd of what I want)
I also plan on running 200L of water instead of 500L (well that is what is in my IBC, and I didn't really want to drain 300L to do this test)

Its basically just a proof of concept thing.

If I can heat 500L from 12.3 degree to say 40 in 5 hours I will be happy.

So starting temp is 12.3 C at 4.00pm.

Lets see what happens

:text-+1:

In all grain brewing after the mash tun is drained the grains are rinsed with more hot water to collect more of the sugars. This is called sparging.

I frequently get 55l+ out of my system with a 38l mashtun.
