I get a lot of bubblegum in the aroma, but not much in the flavor until third or fourth generation. I don't think I ever got it that low, but I don't add much simple sugars.

Would it hurt to add 1/2 a campden tablet to my RO water just as a precaution?   ;l
Shouldn't be needed with RO if your concern is chlorine or chloramine.

Looks great! Keep an eye on the outside wall and compressor temps. Often times the heat is dissipated on the outside faces.

Maybe to keep the slits as low as possible to draw out as much of the wort as possible. Slits in the pipe that touches the bottom ahold be fine.

At <5" long, I imagine the lid isn't ideal for the larger fermenters.

I wasn't sure what size he has. SS Brewtech has thermowell's up to 300 mm (~1 ft) long, which should be plenty long enough for the lid.
Interesting. I was going off of the size listed as brewbucket accessories.

1 - use a pickup that is far from the center
2 - swirl for about a min
3 - let rest for 30 min
4 - open the valve enough to fill the tubing
5 - close the valve to as slow as you can stand

Pumps help, but not needed.

Go as short as you can while still making it easy to plumb and work in. I have 2x6 which is snug when it comes to line, but less empty space to keep cold and 2" shorter is a welcome change from when I had a 2x8.

Any rust or iron in your system? Even a small bit in the kettle can cause and off flavor.

I don't understand your plan. I think you are over complicating it.

How are you controlling the temp? Aquarium heater and refrigerator?
