With my brewing set up I have to haul my kettle full of water, hot wort etc. from basement to garage and visa versa. This got to wear on me so I bought a pump. It is not self priming. Now I’m thinking this might not work for me because both of the kettles I plan to use do not have a spigot. Originally, I planned on putting the hose over the lip of the kettle and down into the wort or water (using clamps so the hoses didn’t fly all over the place). I know the pump has to be below the source, which is no problem, but I would somehow have to have liquid in the intake hose, right? Any ideas or suggestions?
