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.

Will it Work? – Touch Screen Heat Stick with Recirculation, Temp and Time Control

Anova Sous Vide Immersion Circulator - 120V Circulator Cooker

The Anova Sous Vide Immersion Circulator is designed for… Sous Vide.  The gist of that cooking method is vacuum sealing food and then boiling.  It’s supposed to be amazing, though I’ve never tried it.

Anyway, this Immersion Circulator is 1,000 Watts, heats 4 to 6 gallons of water to 99 deg C (nearly boiling), has a touch screen control for both temp and time (either F or C) and has a built in recirculating pump for keep consistent temps.  Everything that goes into the water is stainless steel, and it can be disassembled for cleaning.

This isn’t a budget sort of a unit.  With a little work and ingenuity you could combine an STC 1000, A heating element, a high temp sous vide pump, A GFCI Outlet, some wiring and a prodigious amount of caution!, Water + Electricity = Danger.  Be careful.  if you don’t know what you’re doing someone who does, and come up with the same sort of functionality.

Also, there are some unknowns.  This clamps on the top of the kettle.  It also has a minimum and maximum water level.  What does that equate to in volume?  Don’t know.

At the very least… (with the right size kettle) this would work for getting strike water up to temp and keeping right at temp.  IF the guard doesn’t get too hot… Could it possibly work for small batch BIAB?  IF that did work, it would be pretty amazing because you could keep your mash right at temperature and do step mashes.

Has anyone used this or a similar setup for brewing – either prefab or DIY?  If so, let’s hear about it.  Beyond that… what do you think?
