Well I made a bit of progress today as the first real lake effect snow hit is today. Have everything on hand or ordered for the build except for the stand still debating wood or metal? Built the manifold for MT today out of 1/2" copper pipe and fittings, will complete the line out to ss ball lock once I have those parts.

I just have all the fittings push fitted without any solder. I used a Rotozip for all the cuts and slots. Nice and tight fits well into the MT. Each long leg are @8" and the end one with the tee heading out is 7.5" to accommodate for the space of the tee.

Did you buy a full 8' section of copper pipe? This is exactly how i need to get mind done. How much water is left over in the MLT?

I bought 10' which was way too much probably could do it with less than half that, I will have to measure what's left. 10' was only $12 and some change at Lowes. I haven't used it yet so not sure how much will be left in the bottom. I will post that when I do.

I see your MLT is the same as mine, how do you plan on having the heated wort enter the MLT? I was thinking of installing a fitting in the lid with a length of silicon hose long enough to lay on the top of the mash.

I measured what was left and I have just over 68" remaining after I built it. Added a short straight section to the bulk head drain when I got my ball valves, and a small section of silicon tubing will add two hose clamps to this at some point if needed will post a pic soon. So the bottom line was that I built this with @4.33' of 1/2" copper tubing plus the tees and elbows! Just remember measure twice and cut once straight and clean and you should be ok.

Brian, do you need the extra copper for your build? Let me know!

Yeah either that or just a loose tub dropping in and the top just resting on it? I think I will brew with it a few times to tweak those things.
