I just upgraded my pumps (809HS) to the larger March 815 impeller. Highly suggested as it has reduced the cavitation and sometimes they even prime and pump hard on the initial power-up.

I just got a Blichmann Therminator and used it for the first time this past weekend. Works very well, but it still takes a while (45 minutes?) to cool the whole batch in the kettle before going to the fermenters.
Very nice, Dean. And you just made that stand last week, too. Some people have way too much energy.
Do you chill the wort through two therminators directly to the fermenters? If so, do you have one running ground water and one with ice water?
Dean, what happened to make you this passionate against the Vittles Vault? Did grain spoil on you? I've had a good experience with mine thus far.
onto a plate held above the grain bed (using gloves of course). It can be a pain, especially when I'd rather be measuring the runoff pH and grav.
