Got a bunch of new stuff in recently and got to use it on its inaugural batch yesterday. My calcs were a little off, but I expected that since I had never done an actual batch with it yet and had only done runs with plain water.

On to the pics!

March pump mounted to an old desk drawer. It sounds weird, but it's portable and it works. The pump is connected to a remotely controlled switch so I can flip it on and off via a control I keep in my pocket.

Mr. Buford:

Quite an impressive collection. Sometimes I wish I had a pump. I have the Brewmometer, though and found I needed to calibrate it when it first arrived. Once set, however, it keeps good temperature. One warning: be sure you don't let the level of water in the pot drop below the temp probe unless you turn off the fire. Don't ask me how I learned this.
