I just picked up a 12v dc pump from solar pumps with stainless connections for 75 bucks. I think the GMP is about half the one you linked to but for 5-10gal batches it's plenty.

I've had it in mind to develop something similar to this thing but more brewer-centric. I hate how this thing takes the brewer out of brewing. I also hate how it is a plastic wonderland. If you're...

I don't want to be a negative nancy and take away from this guy's business but that's only 4-500 bucks of goodies. Granted, the software is written and it's prebuilt...mostly...but still.

Any way you can post some pics of the volume sensors you mentioned? You've got a lot of the same elements in your rig as I'm working on. Measuring volume is my last weakness. Thanks
