I also did not like sweating into the kettle. All the heat is dumped directly into the wort on this system. Of course you lose some heat through the keg, but your heat doesn't have to penatrate through the keggle either. Let me know if you have questions. The Pol's stuff is great to use as a reference as are the others who have commented on his pages who have built simular systems.
Nothing beats heating up water for mash in at around 4-5 degrees a minute!... well I am sure some things would, but its pretty awesome
