yes, I was a little ambitious Thinking i could post and brew at the same time.I took some pictures of the system that I will upload Tonight or tomorrow. I got to take the wife to that Smerf movie tonight.

As for the brew, hit the numbers -.002 so Im happy with that, but need to work out a good way to prime my pump. It took me 5minto get the air out.

WHAT pump?

March?

I am testing the LG 3-MD-HC in the next week or so.

If need be... I will be able to prime one pump, with the other... so I really only need to get ONE primed, then I can force prime the other.

Yes its just a standard March pump. I have I configured for the old set up, but the opposite of the way it use to be. I was getting a little air stuck in the pump, and could not get it to come out.
