Hello all. I've decided to start designing my own HERMS system, and I've thrown together a schematic. Eventually I'm going to need some assistance specifying different parts, but for now I'd just really like y'alls input. Am I missing anything major?

The general idea is that I have my mash continuously circulating through my bypass, then when my temperature controller deems it necessary, switches flow to the copper coil in the hot liquor tank. When all is done, and lautered. The water from the hot liquor tank can be used for sparging. Again, is there anything major missing? I plan to continue to use my 10 gallon igloo cooler as my mash/lauter tun, and a keg for my hot liquor tank.
