Heat Exchange Re-circulating Mash Systems (HERMS)

HERMS stands for Heat Exchange Recirculating Mash System. With a HERMS setup a heat exchanger is immersed in the Hot Liquor Tank (HLT) and a pump circulates wort from the mash tun through the heat exchanger then back into the mash to maintain the mash temperature.

Now you can use the 4500W Stainless Steel ultra-low watt density heating elements in your kettle whether you want to brew 5 or 10 gallons. This is the best combination of watt density and material for your boil kettle. You can "turn it up to 11" until you reach a boil, and then dial it back to exactly whatever you need. For larger brewing systems, this unit will control elements up to 6000W.
