It's much worse for the compressor to constantly turn on and off than it is to run for extended periods of time.

I believe the galvanized coating will burn off if it gets hot enough. That would not be good.

Do you have a gear reduction? Pulleys are normally used because they're simple and cheap. Gear reductions are expensive in comparison.

By saying this, I have to assume that you don't decant your starters before pitching, which IMO is 100 times worse than using hopped wort and decanting before pitching.

If you do decant, then how...

I'm confused. You say you want perfection but yet you add the well oxygenated starter wort to the fermenter. Why not cold crash, decant and pitch only the yeast?
