I have the exact same box with my pump mounted exactly like yours. You're right about the slanted sides, was definitely tricky getting it flush in there.

So, are you heating water to mash temp in your HLT, transferring to mash-tun then just keeping it even with your Heating Element?

Sorry to raise this thread from the dead. Very interested in this project as it'll scale very nicely with my 1 gallon experiments to my 5/10 gallon production batches. Also, I've been thinking about using this idea as a Sous Vide temp controller system for cooking a large quantity of meat for a social gathering. Either way I'll be building one of these in the next year or two. Thanks for the build log!
