Many props to SWMBO for today... I was supposed to be working on a closet re-do and cooking dinner for her and her offspring, and instead I got plenty of time for a 1st PM brew... Then again she is the one who got me into homebrew with my first kit, I blame her completely...

I have to give credit to Whirlfloc, and the new CFC on this... I had one using my I.C. that looked closed to this... It is freakin awesome to see though...

Cool setup! Sorry for the pun. I just had one question. I know there are no stupid questions, but could you explain or show how you re-circulate the water using the pump. How is it setup? How does it work?

I prefer to use the recirculating ice water method... Tend to waste less water that way... I also have free access to an ice machine, so that helps with the $$$ aspect....

Here is a link to another thread about the setup : Here ya go...

Lemme know if you have any more questions...
