Not quite as compact as the sabco chillwizard that inspired me, but the recirc and flow meter make it so much better in my opinion. I only had to futz with the flow on the meter a few times during the sparge to keep it around .3gpm, but otherwise it ran great. 5500w on 120v is a little low for a big mash but I was able to step a degree every 5 minutes or so without flowing too much to stick the mash. It was a 30# 60/40 wheat pils grist with only 2# or so of rice hulls so I wasn't about to push the flow on this batch. Playing with the equipment layout now is a heck of a lot easier than when I get my stand finished and everything mounted to it, so I'd rather figure things out now.
