1 Comparing Different Mashing Techniques RIMS vs. HERMS vs Comparing Different Mashing Techniques RIMS vs. HERMS vs. Single Infusion by: Harold J. Gulbransen & Bob MacKay
2 Is there a difference between HERMS & RIMS mashing? HERMS = heat exchange recirculating mash systemRIMS = recirculating infusion mash systemAdvantages over single infusion mashingClearer wortMore precise temperature controlPerform more complex mash schedules
3 Is there a difference between HERMS & RIMS mashing? Potential disadvantagesRequires a pump so added costScorching the wort is possible with RIMS if the pump failsNo scorching with HERMS as the wort never contacts direct heat
7 Controlling the Variables Brewed a Bock Bier to feature it’s malty characterSame water profile – carbon filtered SD waterSame maltsSame sparging technique [batch sparge]Same mash tun, kettle and chillerPitched same volume of yeast and feremented all beers in 10 gallon corny kegs [same geometry] and in the same chest freezer using a Johnson Controller
