If you can afford an electric pump and are willing to put up with that level of complexity, then there are better options out there for you.TheBigBrit said:Noob question - is there a reason why you can't pump the cooled wort from the ouput of a CFC back into the brew pot, using an outlet that started a whirlpool?
Let it sit for 30 minutes, then drain to the fermenter leaving the cold break etc. behind? Or am I missing something?
