Other Fermentables / First Perry

I successfully juiced and strained 5 gallons of pear cider. I could easily have made 15 gallons more. Tasted really good as fresh pear juice. I may just have to keep some fresh in the fridge too. OG was 1.043 after pasteurization at 160 ºF. Cooled to 80º and added 2.5 tsp of pectic enzyme and stirred. Let it cool further outside for several hours and pitched a pack of Nottingham dry yeast at 65º. Still not actively fermenting at 12 hours after pitching yeast.

Equipment and Software / Ordered a Blichmann Top Tier system

I just broke down and ordered a Blichmann Top Tier system. I went with the default setup of 2 burners and one shelf. I also ordered a pump mounting bracket for my March pump and the mounting bracket for my Therminator plate chiller. I am moving up from a three level steel rack I had welded a year back. I already have a 60 qt stock pot (hot liqueur tank), a 72 qt rectangular party cooler (mash tun) and a Sabco keggle.

Any suggestions on whether to mount the mash tun on top or hot liqueur tank up top? I was thinking of using the March pump to move the hot sparge water, to insure it is sanitary prior to pumping the wort. Plus, I'm a bit uncomfortable having 12 gallons of boiling water up top.
