Subject: Rodney Morris' RIMS and other automated mash tuns
Date: 1992-03-06 00:33:00 GMT

I am looking for information on building a, automated mash tun. I have
seen Auto-Mash and it is quite expensive. Not being a SS welder,
I can't try to duplicate it. I saw the Zymurgy on Morris' RIMS and
have heard some HBD readers have built this. Any ideas or suggestions
would be helpful. Someone at the AHA said he has recently automated
the RIMS with some electronic controls, that sounds like fun.

I have a couple of concerns: heating the water, rather than the grains
to increase mash temp. could destroy enzymes; and can you get a
good, quick temp. increase by heating the water rather than the grains.

An auto decoction system would be great, but appears to be quite
a difficult engineering feat.
