I have added a 3 way valve on the outlet side of my pump. It allows me 'burp' the pump if I happen to get an air bubble in the chamber. It is a whole lot easier than moving hoses full of boiling...

Nice build. I just finished something similar. One thing I did differently was to wire the computer fan to be on all the time. I figured it would help keep the temp more consistent in the chamber.

2) I recirc onto a plastic plate sitting on the top of the grain bed.
3) I added...

So they do exist! I was beginning to think they were just the stuff of legend.

OP, can you tell me how tall that is with the air lock in place? I need to see if it'll fit in the ferm chamber.

I did it backwards and built the ferm chamber last. That was probably a mistake. Make you yeast happy and they'll make good beer. Build the ferm chamber first.

The 7/8" hole was made with a Greenlee hydraulic punch. The 1/2" hole was made with an Irwin step bit. I used a butt load of Harbor Freight HSS bits for the pilot holes.

That is one system you wouldn't want to brew on while drinking!! Keeping track of one 3-way valve is tough. I can't imagine using a BAZILLION.

Nice looking setup.
