You shouldn't have a problem with heat since you run the pump for much shorter periods than I do. After my current projects I may have a go at this and I will keep you updated. I fly sparge so I will need 2 pumps in the same space, but I still think it can be done fairly easily.

Nice, Evan!.
I want to do something similar, but I am cheap and lazy. Do you think I would get comparable results if I mounted a drill over the brew kettle with an attached paint stirrer or mixer?

Hmm, as much as HSA is a myth, that might be asking for trouble.

Yeah, I was thinking keeping the speed on low, with just enough movement to keep the wort moving. It would be similar to stirring the wort with a spoon.

Could work, depending on how you designed it. First step would be finding a drill that you could set on a very low speed, and hold it there somehow.

It's 3/8" copper TUBING (not piping). The white tubing is 1/2" ID thermoplastic tubing from NB. It's awesome.

So I'm a little confused about operation here. You're using an IC and pumping the wort out the kettle through the IC? or over the IC? or what the crap?
