    Maybe I'll divert the large stainless conical strainer (that I used in the past when I bailed
    into my primary) and turn it into a hop spider...

    So, no filtration or screen required? Just an open pipe end?

    So.... You put the inlet and outlet elbows pointing in the SAME direction? Doesn't that work
    against the whirlpool? Or is that to try and prevent debris from clogging the outlet orifice?

    I'm looking into changing my set up by introducing some pumps. I've always just bailed my boil
    kettle out into a strainer held over the primary in the past. So now I'll need to port my
    kettle and inst...

    Hmm. Inersting idea though - what about simply putting a scale under my grant? I could skip
    putting a sight glass in....

    Hmm. Wasn't even considering it for wort, just hot water to measure out my mashing or sparge
    water. I assume from the picture that it may be something used in one of those units for making
    hot beverag...

    I've done the preliminary work. It was a bit of a nightmare the way he's set it up. I found the
    bulkhead fitting from a (clean but spare) toilet supply valve worked beautifully and I had a
    braided con...

    I've never really eyeballed any of the fancier automated brew systems up close, but I am in the
    process of constructing a platform to make my brewing more efficient. I've always batch
    sparged, and oft...

    I'm thinking the type of drive inside the pump is the biggest question. If it's direct drive,
    I'm not sure if restricting the flow is a smart idea. Hopefully it's magnetic drive - but
    probably not...
