Ok that makes sense. When you mentioned exit condition I thought you meant some sort of automated bypass valve to divert the hot water or something, but you are just implementing a simple fail safe shutdown.

When fly sparging are you able to go straight through the RIMS tube and directly into the mash tun or do you have to recirculate part of it like Sizz had to?

I am recirculating in the same manner. It does even out the heating well. I tried doing without, but came to the same conclusion that Sizz did. Otherwise it could be a 1 pump system.

The only drawback that I can see to this 2 vessel method is the inability to chemically treat the sparge water since it comes directly from the tap.

Care to share what your current programming looks like? Just about ready to dive into mine.

I'll send you a PM this evening, after I get done brewing an Irish Red.
