FAQ

Given that the RIMS rocket has a natural fluctuation of temperature and sometimes reaching above 156°F, will the heat from the coil de-nature the Beta-Amylase enzymes in the mash?

THE MASHING PROCESS IS VERY DURABLE.  The enzymes do not denature instantly. DENATURING IS a process that takes time. As the wort goes though the RIMS Rocket, the enzymes heat up, but are quickly returned to the top of the mash and cool off QUICKLY.  USING A LOWER POWER SETTING (25% OR SO) ONCE YOU’VE REACHED YOUR STEP TEMP WILL REDUCE OVERSHOOTING AND ELIMINATE ANY ENZYMATIC DEGREDATION.  With all OTHER factors correct, SUCH AS WATER CHEMISTRY, MASH PH, AND PROPER CRUSH, achieving 80% efficiency is achievable with a RIMS setup.  MOST IMPORTANTLY, HOWEVER, IS MASH PERFORMANCE REPEATABILITY.
