Don't laugh because it's so small
« on: May 28, 2017, 07:25:37 PM »
Got this little guy off Amazon for $16.00. It's did grade, safe for up to 220°. Out dies about 2.5gpm. All I'm doing is moving my strike water up to my mash tun. Did a test run worth our last night and I couldn't be happier. Taking it on it's maiden voyage today with a batch of Chocolate Starfish Porter.

What is the part number for that pump? That sure would be a great, cheap method of pumping!

The fittings are worth twice the price I paid for the pump. Go figure.

Love the fittings. I decided for the cost of the pump, I'm going to buy a second one for wort transfers. If I go that root, I won't have to be supporting hoses. When I build my control panel I designed it with that in mind, so it's just a matter of plugging in in the back and flipping the rifle switch to turn it on.

Most of the 12v pumps I've seen, mine included, came with the exposed leads. I have an old AC Adapter wired to mine. I'll be adding a VR soon so I can ditch the throttle valve.
