I have been brewing on a Sabco Brew Magic for around 10 years. I've never scorched a wort.

Mine doesn't work as well as they advertised at the time. It is not a set it and forget system, although I think the latest probably are. I was always under/over shooting mash temps so I stopped using the heater on it entirely. I find that I have a lot more control just giving it a boost of heat from the burner as needed. It is an extremely well made, durable system. Keep in mind, RIMS stands for Recirculating Infusion mash System. It doesn't need an inline heater, that's just what most folks do. The important part is the recirculation.

In all that time, I haven't had any electrical problems. It's been a great investment.

My system from post #8

How much for a bare frame shipped.... cash? (no one has to know)

Hey Jim, I've never heard of anybody having problems with the heating element. Ours works perfect and will maintain temps at +1 to -1. I was just trying to think what could cause a problem for you. Did you set up the offset on the electronics? I know ours had to be set up with a 4 degree offset to match the gauge.

Nice setup. Just for giggles, I showed Mrs. Dave the video. She's a biologist, and works with micro organisms all day.

She thought it was cool, and told me to get a quote. Is this a trap?

Awesome setups. I just bottled some 'Smashing Pumpkin Ale' from Northern Brewer- hope it improves with bottle conditioning, wasn't a huge fan of the little bit I sampled.

I did get a good deal on a 10 gal Igloo cooler and want to get that set up to do my first all-grain batch. After making the mash tun, it's not that big a step to make a RIMS... Might be a good winter project.

Honestly, I haven't played with it in 5 years or so. I just don't find that I need it. I had spent 5ish years trying to make it work and never did including upgrading to move the probe into the wort stream. My system is before that even. That didn't help either. I just gave up and don't really mind. It's one less thing to clean, and doesn't affect my brewing one way or the other. Maybe, I'll try it again next time I brew. Maybe, not

Half the chocolate stout is reserved for a wedding, the other half will be bottled. I'll save you both a bottle. I have currently on tap:
Little Brown Owale
St. Augustine Red
Munich Helles Lager

Pick your poison and come fill a growler while it's left. I'd love to empty my kegs. PM me if you need my number. I'm here all weekend.

Wow, a 60 gallon system sounds great! I visited a guy in Northwood Iowa that uses a 10 gallon Sabco to run a nano brewery called Worth Brewing. He's in Worth county and his tag line is, "If it's not craft brewed, it's not Worth Brewing!"
His beers were great and there are only two stools at the bar. His name is Peter and he use to brew for Summit Brewing. Anybody traveling Northern Iowa or Southern Minnesota should check it out. He uses 6 27 gallon fermenters, brews a double batch three days in a row and then does the same the next week. He then kegs everything for the store. He sells every drop he makes and there are two casinos seven miles away that want his beer but he has no volume left to share! Now a 60 gallons system along with some bigger fermenters would be nice!
