What I'm not seeing is how your HERM loop connects to your HLT. How are you maintaining temp in the HERM coil?
Yes, however he will never have any fluid travel from the BK to fermenter until it is time to fill up the fermenter. With this setup, he would have to sanitize it pre-brew session, which would be a pain. Atleast this is how I see it.
