Does anyone use a RIMS System? If so, did you purchase a complete system or build your own? I ask because I am having our detached garage rebuilt and I am sectioning off part of it for the Brewery. I have looked at the Blichmann products and the SABCO products and both are in the 6K range and neither have a CIP(clean in place option). Money is important to me so I don't want to throw it away but this hobby is also important and after 20 years I want to do this right if I make a change. If you were to start over today how would you build your brewery assuming Quality was most important, 10 gallon batches were the standard and easy clean up was necessary? You don't want to waste money but you have a little to spend. The space will be 12 FT by 8FT with floor drain, deep sinks, large chest freezer (current fermentation chamber) and a keg refrigerator. I also have SS shelves on casters to place along one wall. Today I use the following equipment: (2) 7.5GAL round coolers, one with a false bottom. 10 Gallon batches push the limits and I frequently make a mess when stirring the grains. (1) tall burner Blichmann capable of bringing 15 gallons to a boil in 30 minutes (1) Immersion chiller - Stainless Steel 50 feet. (1) 8 gallon boil kettle with 1/2 inch valve (1) 20 gallon boil kettle with 1/2 inch valve (4) 6.5 gallon glass fermenters (4) 5.5 gallon glass fermenters (8) Kegs (2) 5# CO2 tanks (1) pH meter (electronic) (1) o2 setup with SS stone (1) Refractometer (not worth the money paid) Other thoughts: Would you vent the room and brew indoors? Currently I brew on a screened in back porch.
