This forum software has global filter options built in, if it's that big of a problem where the guy is banned-on-sight. You can filter it so kegkits comes out as asterisks or "douchebag".

His name is Tom P. Hargrave Jr. which is how I figured out that his previous shill username TPHJR was him. Who knows how many aliases a con artist has though.

Sightglass, Refractometer, Ball Valve, Weldless bulkhead, Thermometer, Decals, Stainless Steel Fittings, Compression Fittings, Camlock Quick Disconnects, Scale, RIMS tube, Plate Chiller, Chugger Pump, Super Clear Silicone Tubing, and more!

New Stuff?

I have looked at the induction route, want to be able to upgrade in future to more automated system but you guys have given me tons to go off.

Those pumps listed, are they food grade and can they handle the water temps of a recirc system? Was figuring save the money and get has been proven. Cheap alternatives typically do not turn out to be viable replacements.

Sorry. I missed this reply. Yes they are food grade, and a number of members here have used them for 2+ years. The pump is slower than the March/Chugger options, but in my opinion this isn't a huge deal as home brewer. I do 5 gallon and the occasional 10 gallon batch. I recirculate 100% of the time with this pump during a RIMS mash and use it to re-circulate from BK through plate chiller and back to BK after the boil for chilling. You won't get the normal whirlpool effect though with this.

My biggest plus on this pumps is there's really no priming like my March. I have it connected directly to a QD that connects to my valves. When I need it, I attached it to the valve, open the valve to fill the line, and then turn it on. No relief valve for air purging or anything like that.
