That's a great idea!
Do you run the wort pump to heat the HERMS with one of the Love switches?
Nice work on the panel also!
Your right. It is kind of like having a baby. After that much time, you just want to get it over with.
The water pump on the left looking at the front of the rig continually circulates the HLT through the annulas of the CFC. One PID controls the heating element for the HLT the other PID controls the wort pump on the right for the mash tun which flows through the inner tubing of the CFC. Worked pretty well. It brought 5 gal of 71* water in the MLT to 150* in less than 30 minutes with the HLT set at 170*.
