justcopen,

Biggest issue would be the lack of threaded fittings, IMO. As for the GreatBrewEh pump, their stainless version is expected in 2 weeks. These are from Topsflo pumps in China. I did contact that directly about a group buy but they require 200+ units purchased, however they are only $26 a piece.

I have a pair of the brass connector Topsflo pumps I'm playing with.
I haven't actually measured them, but they are rated for 15 watts @ 12VDC.
So max draw should be 1.25A each.

Wow... a post about code I wrote....

I wrote and currently use the PWM pump control on the steam output. I also wrote the pulsed input pump control for fly sparge, which I also use.

If you PWM control a pump for fly sparge I HIGHLY suggest you use a peristaltic and not a centrifugal pump, as the flow rate is linear with RPM, makes controlling it much easier.
