This subject is discussed in an article in the latest issue of Zymurgy. A RIMS (recirculating infusion mash system) uses a loop to recirculate the mash liquid. An electric element in the loop applies heat to maintain the temperature. A HERMS (heat exchanger recirculating mash system) uses a coil immersed in the hot liquor tank as the heat source. Both types of systems require a pump for recirculation.
