I looked again and found what you were talking about. I ended up getting a 1.5hp model for just a few bucks more ($80), just so I could say mine is bigger than yours! Thanks for the info. I'm hoping this completes my CIP system.

Mostly I did it for sanitation purposes. I can just pump sanitizer through the same port, empty it, close the valves, and it stays sanitary until I'm ready to fill. One less thing to worry/forget about during the brewday.

Your system was the inspiration for mine, btw. Nice work on that.

I guess about 3 gallons. Enough to cover the pump.

Sort of off-topic, but does anyone know a place to source coils similar to the ones they use in the Brewhemoth for temperature control?

I'd like to set up a similar temperature control system, but the Brewhemoth fermenters are just way too big for my system.

I'd love some more info on that pump too, I need something to replace my dead 1/4hp submersible that I used for cleaning my brewehemoth, carboys, kegs, etc.

I'd rather do it right this time rather than buying something that'll have to get replaced in 2 years

I use 5 gallons PBW as most of it turns to foam if i use any less. I need to get a no foam cleaner to use less solution.
