Default Nate's RIMs build - the brew throne

I am starting a RIMs build. My pics will follow shortly. I am not using a heat stick. I am recircing though an electric turkey fryer which will be on all the time, but will have a temperature control - thermostat style.

Curious to see more, just got my first march pump and soon I'll be collection RIMS parts.

I feel like RIMS is the lightsaber of homebrewers. No instruction manual, no parts list, just word of mouth and your personal skill set.

No one is commenting (yet), but I'm watching this thread.

I see your pump, your temp gauge. I don't see the heating element or at least wires for it. Also, I see what appears to be to outputs. Why two? Is the second to drain the tube when you're done?

I haven't built my RIMS yet, so my questions are newb questions.

P.S. Your brew in a bag thread got me started in that method. My efficiency is at 50%, so I've got some room for improvement.
