Default building an automated tier setup, couple ? s

I am gathering parts for my 3 tier automated setup. I'm planning to have a 1/4" solenoid valve for fly sparging and need to decide on which size valve for the initial strike. Would 1/2" suffice (already have a 1/2" bulkhead and valve) or should I go up to 1" to move water quicker?

I've done calcs with 5-7gal of head pressure and it shouldn't take but a couple minutes to move the strike water into the MLT.

5gal batches to start. Will move to 10gal batches later.
