I left one fitting off because I'm putting vinyl tubing on the outlet. I brew outside, and I'll be draining the water onto the grass/driveway as I'm cooling the wort....I can't wait to try this sucker this weekend!
One small suggestion. Bend your inand out tubes down a little more, that way if you spring a leak the water will drip on the ground and not roll along the tubing and into your wort.

Also, reuse the water. Use it to fill a bucket or your MLT so you have nice hot water to rinse things in.
