That's the design I would go for in the first instance.

Should be able to "zero" it on an empty vessel before use with or without the pump.

I'm not sure any of these things are suitable for measuring SG.

You might want to go and browse the Brewtroller forums as much of this has been tested which is how they ended up using the "bubbler method".

I forget the details but it seems like steam and thermal expansion created issues in trying to use just the sensor alone to measure volume.

This is what I ended up going with. Still had all the equiptment and Brewtroller seems like an awesome user interface.

I can't wait for my system to come together.
