Additional heat shielding welded onto HLT burner grate to protect lower HERMS coil ball valve

(Recirculating Infusion Mash)
The ability to recirculate your mash is standard on Ruby Street Systems without the optional digital controller system. Controlling the temps on your mash can be done manually, but with the digital controller these temps are controlled, firing your burner automatically, and is highly recommended.
Many Brewers are choosing the option to maintain mash temperatures and perform step mashes by applying direct heat to the mash tun from a burner, either fueled by propane or natural gas. The pump keeps the wort recirculating fast enough so that there are no worries about scorching the wort. The pump runs continuously during the mash and the heat, the flame is cycled on and off by a Digital Controller to maintain the set temperature in the mash. Ruby Street also offers their own newly designed Digital Controller, please see the options.

If you are not getting the best flame possible out of your propane burner, you may have triggered a safety valve in the propane regulator body. This occurs when the gas flow through the regulator is too great. You will need to disconnect the regulator from your propane tank to release the safety valve. While connecting your regulator to your propane tank, it is very important that the propane tank and all needle valves are completely closed. Once the regulator is correctly connected to your closed tank, open the propane tank slowly to allow gas to flow into the regulator. You can now open the needle valve enough to ignite your burner. Once the burner is lit you can slowly open the needle valve until you reach the desired flame intensity.
