I like the idea of your pipes as that may provide some support. We can use a plate on the bottom because we do not directly heat the MLT but currently use a counter flow chiller as a HERMS.
I have a separate thread for the tippy dump:

The customized GUI thread has been updated with file downloads for doing the customization yourself. See link to thread in my signature.

The valves are from KLD. The folks at OSCSYS.com usually have them. http://www.oscsys.com/1-2-2-Way-Moto...-Override.html

Do the thermoplastic hose hold the pressure when you restrict the valve at the top of the kettle?

Yes, they hold the pressure fine - with no clamps used. The Chugger & March pumps put out very little pressure.

I have to say this is one awesome single tier. Im planning my own brew stand and will most likely be using some of your design. Hope you don't mind. On that note, i have a question about your plate chiller. I understand your current configuration allows you to recirculate back into the brew kettle until you get to pitching temp. However, do you just run tap water through the non-wort side? Does it chill quickly or do you somehow run ice water through the non-wort side while recirculating? I appreciate any response. Thanks!
