Cool glass. Is that a metal base there?
I made a copper manifold for my tun, I made a figure-8 design, with an angled middle cross bar (the spigot for my cooler is at the front)
I cut probably a good hundred plus slots in in, and I can get pretty clear after about 3 qts of vorlaufing.
I don't know my exact efficiency, but I hit my expected gravity pretty much spot on each time I've used it. I even entered data into one of the brew calcuators after the fact and got within .001 of my actual results.
