Default yeah for me, pump on the way

Finally broke down and bought the pump. As soon as I get the new kettle, 10 gallon batches here I come. In the meantime, I can brew my 5 gallon batches at a reasonably safe height

I've been having pump envoy for a while. I want to try the no-sparge brewing but still haven't got a pump yet.

I got my pump as I started to plan out my HERMS system, but WAY before I had the actual HERMS parts I was using the pump in my brewing. I dropped down to a single tier and stopped lifting heavy buckets.

AWESOME.

I've had a pump almost a year year now (March 809) that I've yet to use. Need to break down and buy the valves and QD fittings to make my transfer hoses so I can start using it.

Got my pump last week from Austin Homebrew. Haven't used it yet. I now have everything to build my "Brew cart" except my fittings from pro flow dynamics...
Can't wait to get everything in order!!

Why do you need a pump for 10 gallon batches? I do mostly 10 gallon batches, but don't have a pump.



That being said, a pump is on my list. Along with a plate chiller and a lot of other stuff.

The biggest benefit I got from the pump was single tier brewing. No more lifting hot water or trying to climb up to dump sparge water into my MLT.
