I'm using hoses, so I could probably rig up a male to male quick disconnect segment to join the two hoses together, then disconnect and put the pump inline.

Have to think about...

I can see I'm being unnecessarily complicated here. But that how I roll.

Forcing water through pump while off

I picked up a second pump to allow me to set my mash and kettle on the same tier (fell off a ladder. ouch.).

I'm doing some layout diagrams to figure out my new flow. I figured I could also save...

Pump projects and brain farts

After falling off a ladder with my last brew day tending to my mash, I decided it was time to get a second pump. I have a Little Giant 3-MD mounted to the bottom of my BrewLadder to return liquid to...

Anyone dual-purposing a PID for RIMS and a BBQ blower fan?
