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?

I'm envisioning the glass mason jar exploding into a million pieces and hot wort being sprayed throughout my garage... no?

Why? Mason jars are pretty robust. They can handle the heat (canning involves boiling them), these small pumps cant put out much pressure etc.
