I understood, seeing as how I'm the OP. I'm not trying to mock you at all just trying to get your reasoning for the way you like your equipment the way you do, so me and others planning ebiab setups can use your opinions to make our setups right from the start, making it less of a trial and error thing to get the setup we think is right for us.

If you like your setup than that's great! Sorry if I offended you and your setup.

Thats a rad rig you got there! Very clean setup! What is the top valve for? Recirculation?

I like him!

I'd love to convert my keg to a keggle, but then I'd be wasting the 10g Blichmann I bought last year...

I'm assuming the top valve is for recirculating as well, mind sharing how that's setup? I thought about making a permanent recirc line for my kettle but figured it pointless if the water doesn't go through the bag/grains.

Yes sir, the top valve is for recirculation. Toolbox is the controller obviously, but the pump pulls from the bottom valve to recirculate wort to the top of the grains. I only make 5.25 gallon batches with this rig, but it works very well. It's been pretty accurate and my efficiency has been on the higher side of expectancy of what a BIAB rig should provide. One of my personally favorite perks is the stainless stand its on is low enough to comfortably pull the grain bag out without too much effort. I make no mess in the brew day and it cleans up VERY quickly.

I will be brewing this weekend, so when I get it all set up and in action I will take pics of it to show you a better example of it's use.

I'm on 110v:

Here is complete setup: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f85/pictorial-my-brew-day-5-gal-ebiab-303827/

I keep telling myself I am going to get a pump to recirculate, but my efficiency has been so good I simply don't have the need for one yet.

Just curious. How long would it take to get 14 gallons of wort to boil using electricity? Using heating elements?
