Is there any reason this type of DIY set up couldn't be used as a really cheap and easy Randall while serving?

Could you use this same design, lay the jar on its side assuming no leaks and have a SS braid laying down the side of the jar to gravity feed the hopback and that way you wouldn't have to buy a pump?

I'm interested in the results of this and similar setups. Do you truly see a noticeable difference in hop aroma, flavor, and retention over time??

This was a great thread i went and got all the parts but i have a few questions on hop backs in general, First is this only for Hot wort to run through or could you Hook this up to a kegeraitor? I usually only set my kegeraitor at 8-12 PSI if i hooked this up between the Keg and the tap would this work and hold pressure? Also would i get anything out of this or would the first two beers be super hopy aroma and the rest just be Blah?

Is this system still working for you? Any adjustments?
