Well, you've got to visualize to understand, but the liquid won't pour straight down - it kinda arcs out, so it doesn't really dribble over the handle or anything. The shape and lack of a mug-type...

I think there was anecdotal talk here and there that a pump could overdrive the assembly and shoot wort out, probably exactly what you're talking about. I didn't experience this myself, just heard...

The sub-question should be: If you could only choose between a commercial brewery and your own home brew for the rest of your life, how many seconds would it take you to say homebrew?

It does have a battery backup and it is brand new, so there's something to look into. I did think about that the other day, so I'll check that when I get home.

Going crazy - does the Johnson A419 have an alarm or beeper?

Something in my garage is beeping and I have no idea where it's coming from. It seems to be totally random and only beeps once every few hours or so, so I have not been able to identify it yet.

I just lay a long enough length of tubing directly on top of the mash and recirc that way (with no fitting on the end - just single sided hose). No port, no drilling and still just as versatile.
