Complete your electric brewery with the RIMS-Rocket form Blichmann Engineering. RIMS stands for Recirculation Infusion Mash System, and it allows you to heat your mash with the use of electricity, instead of a propane/natural gas burner. This is great for those wanting to move their brew day indoors. The immersion heating coil of the RIMS-Rocket leverages the HopRocket canister for its housing, so existing HopRocket owners can simply purchase the conversion kit to be up and running. For those that don't own a HopRocket, the bundle item can be purchased.

  • The RIMS-Rocket heating element is LESS THAN ultra low watt density which means NO chance of scorching, and is engineered to perform optimally in your RIMS system.
  • Removable custom engineered plug means cleaning is a snap - no dangling power cord tethered to your heater and the terminal pins are spray-down capable!
  • The RIMS-Rocket includes a "plug and play" 12ft factory wired cable with a molded twist-lock plug on one end, and a Blichmann custom removable plug on the other end.
  • All fittings are standard 1/2" Male NPT

Important Electrical Specifications.
The cable is 12 gauge high quality very flexible cable. Each cord will have a factory installed plug on each end, so the product is truly plug-and-brew! The heater end of the cable is terminated with a Blichmann custom molded plug. The other end is terminated with a twist-lock connector: L6-30P for the 240V model, and L5-20P for the 120V model.

Rated Voltage (VAC) 240 120
Recommended GFCI Breaker Size 20/30 20

Great Addition
Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon
This has been a great addition to my home made propane brew stand. My biggest issue was maintaining mash target temperatures, and after the propane burner gets the water to temp. the RIMS rocket keeps there with a temp. controller I built for it with no problem. If anything, the RIMS is a bit over engineered, but its a very high quality product that I enjoy working with on brew days. In addition, it easily and quickly converts to a hop back to do double duty and is no problem to clean - no scorching or build up on the heater element.

Performs as advertised

Decided to add this to my brewstand. Had a propane controller controlling my HLT and the RIMS Rocket in conjuction with a 240v control module to run my mash. The one thing they don't tell you is you'll likely need to purchase a 240v adapter to work with your 240v plugin, likely a 240v extension cord unless you conveniently have a plugin that close to your brewstand and lastly the temp sensor elbow that of course Blichmann sells for a hefty price tag. This attaches on the top of the RIMS Rocket to give temp feedback to your module. Overall the RIMS Rocket works really really well. So far I have no complaints. Heats wort very quickly as it has a 240v heating unit. Great product so far with 3 uses.
