120V Blichmann RIMS Rocket Now Available

Blichmann RIMS-Rocket

I just received word from Great Fermentations that the 120 V version of Blichmann’s RIMS Rocket is now available.

The RIMS Rocket features an immersion heating coil housed inside of a HopRocket Canister.  Existing HopRocket owners can pick up a conversion kit or you can pick up a bundle that includes a HopRocket.  The new 120v flavor is available to order now both in conversion kit and bundled form.  Note that 240v models are also available.

More about the HopRocket… “The HopRocket gives you one tool that can be used either as a hop back when transferring your wort from the kettle to your fermenter, or as an in-line hop infuser (aka Randalizer) for your dispensing system.”

The RIMS-Rocket ends up being a 3 in 1 combo.  You can use it as a hop back, a Randalizer and as a heating element in your RIMS (Recirculation Infusion Mash System) System.
