That is what I would say, Denny.thanks MisagerYou don't even need to worry about that. Just get the March 809 HS pumps,which are the standard pumps for homebrewers.
You answer put it into better simple perspective.
You use a seperate pumps to get the hot liquid to the mash tun, and the wort to the boil. Is this so that you can contoll the speed?
What is the optimal GPH for the pumps? Im in the aquarium hobby and have used lots of pump through the years some ranging from 20gph to 2000gph.
I also have water in both the mash tun and the HLT, added the night before. The mash tun is preheated with a bucket heater, so that I just add the pre-crushed grain to begin the brewday early in the morning. The HLT fire is lit a little before the step to mash out, so it will be at temp for the sparge. Once the brew kettle has enough wort to cover the bottom, that burner gets lit. These steps cut some idle time from the brewday.
