Sorry for the late reply. What about the system are you curious about? The element is powered by the weather proof switch box. It's a simple household on/off switch wired to an outlet in a two gang box with a weather proof cover. It's only powered on to heat the strike and during boil (also during the first few minutes of chilling because you spaced out turning it off).

Future upgrades will include a sightglass and possibly trying my hand at the tig unit I just purchased. This is a great small house/apartment rig since almost the whole setup packs into a 10 gallon pot.

Why recirculate?

It keeps the temperature uniform as I heat the mash with the stove, and maximizes efficiency.

As I build my rig ever outwards and upwards with new pieces, new gadgetry, etc., your simplicity is refreshing.

Could this be accomplished by stirring?

*Edited to sound less condescending. I'm really curious about this step.

Yup, but my arms get pretty tired after a 60 minute mash.
You could get by without the pump, but its nice to not have to stir the mash and recirculating while chilling cuts way down on time and effort. I guess the pump is there because I'm lazy.

Hey, what size is your kettle? Would 9 gallon work?

Is that an immersion chiller? Would you need a second vessel to chill in using the pump (instead of the IC)?

Looking to convert my LP rig for inside apartment use because of a crazy HOA
