Eventually I will upgrade system etc, but it works.
The spring clamp controls the flow of the pump so I don't drain to much out of the kettle at one time. Will get a stainless steel ball valve someday.
Yes very similar and no worries about ghetto. Whatever works! I'm probably overkilling a simple pump/chiller mount but at least I know it will be solid
In regards to the lid, I think I would rather have the input in the side of the pot due to the fact that I plan on having a male camlock on the inside so I can clip in different whirlpool/circulation attachments. I think I should be able to remove the internal component, put the bag in, and attach it no problem.
When I do my electric rims I think I may include the pully on the stand. For now tho I may just mount it on the brew shed itself!
Thanks for the input so far!
