Default Which manifold design

So trying to figure out which manifold design will give me the best flow charectoristics.
Even flow in all sectiond to minimize channeling.

The cross tubes (the ones not in the first pic) will not be slotted. Even spacing between sections, half distance to walls.

Leaning towards 3. I'm not concerned about the extra $4 and something in fittings and pipe or extra work. Just max efficiency.

PrimaryBaltica 9
Secondary British all Amarillo IPA, Calypso
Conditioning Decoction maddness, FlyingJess Ale
Drinking Oatmeal Chocolate Stout, Oaked Bourbon Chocolate Stout, Dry Mead)
Up NextScottish ale and Dopple Bock

Always ready for the wack snack attack, I carry sandwiches around in a straight edge style JanSports backpack.

Are you going to batch sparge?

If yes, the manifold design doesn't have any affect on your lauter efficiency.

The contributors above have said it all. Read the Palmer pieces for some great advice.

Before I learned to brew I was poor, sober and lonely. Now I am just poor.
