I have recently upgraded my brew gear to support HERMS.
Heat Exchange Recirculating Mash System (HERMS) for those curious.
- 10 Gallon Igloo MLT
- 10 Gallon Mega-Pot for HLT - Northern Brewer (Awesome pot)
- SS Chiller for Head Exchange in HLT - NB
- SS Pump - NB (they need to add the Pump Holder....)
- Quick Disconnect Hoses and Connectors - NB
Dough In at 104 F (using underletting process < 30 min rest for Glucans) - So very very easy now...
Protein Rest at 122 F (only if I have good portion of Rye, Wheat, or other Unmodified Grain)
Beta Rest at 140 F
Alpha Rest at 158 F
Mash Out at 170 F
After doing this, my fermentation has gone into overload (always need blow off tube now).
I would appreciate constructive feedback if you have played around with Multi-Temp Mash profiles.
