Well, there are a lot of tutorials for building such a device, even though not all related to brewing. Fundamentally, it's just a controller which handles a pump and a heater and implements a PID via software. The pump part is just an on/off control which activates/deactivates the pump. The PID cont...

I don't know what size kettle or batch size you're looking to do, but I used a #3 for my offset strike temperature in BIABacus. Worked great. At strike, I turned off element and pump, doughed in, stirred (actually use a potato masher) up and down, waited 5 minutes before turning back on element and...

Indeed I have planned 3 batches to get acquainted with the new plant and learn how best conduct a brew session with it. Initially I was mostly concerned with system's thermal behaviour, but it looks like it copes with temperatures very well. The first batch tragedy has happened because I had to intr...

Looks like you have done a great job there Carmine :clap:, The main problem with a RIMS system is ensuring that the recirculating results in washing all the grains not just a bit of it, so keep your eye on that. The only other problem (sorry, I always tend to point out problems :dunno:) with automa...

Thank you! Yes I have built the controller myself. Considering the few things it has to manage a RPi was an overkill for my plant, so I opted for an arduino like based solution. The controller is a Photon from Particle.io. It has plenty of juice and wifi on board! It has 8 digital I/O, some of which...

My first RIMS plant

Hi everyone,

I've recently completed my first RIMS plant. Mostly ordinary stuff, the usual heater element and recirculating
pump.

The plant is managed via WiFi and smartphone.

I have attached a couple of pictures.

Cheers!
