You should consider adding some diagonal lateral trusses to your setup. Then it won't be so
wobbly and is less likely to fold over flat on you. The lateral perpendicular ones you have are

I put mine in the bottom, gravity drain as you described, put a ball valve on the intake (top)

Do you have a wiring diagram? So, I usually do 5.5 gallon batches to result in a full five
gallons at end of ferment. Can you get this final volume from the kettle or do you top off?I do

Do you have extensive electrical knowledge? I really want to put together a system like this

I have been thinking about a similar setup but use my current mlt (cooler conversion) as a

You can get by with one pump and do what you want. Just put a valve on one pump, and use

to chase loose...

I'm asking this without having read the entire thread thouroughly, so you may have already
answered it.Instead of adding your "top off" water to the BK, couldn't you add it to the MT and
continue to d...

Res, with it hard plumbed, you must be doing CIP? Does that mean your break material and
everything is just getting rinsed down and pumped out?Yes, I do clean in place. I put all
additions in bags, ma...
