Slimer, looks great, so you managed with 1"? I suppose that would improve the overall efficiency no?

hahaha i don't think your rig needs to be changed, believe me, right now i'm fighting with how to integrate solenoid 3 ways into mine... or rather, build mine with 3 ways, hard piped, completely modular hlt/mlt/ekettle so all i have to do is replace the heating element in the new ekettle and change the pots in the hlt/mlt and i have 2 water coolers that taste strangely like beer...

I initially started with a much larger container for the heat exchanger but I found the smaller the exchanger, the less dead space there is in the system and as long as you have constant flow past the element, no worries about scorching so a 1" tube works great. I use 2 of these in my system. 1 for the HLT and 1 for the mash.
