Nice looking mash tun Ainzy!
Sometimes you just have to improvise to get by... as long as it doesn't compromise safety its all good. :handgestures-thumbupleft:

The rims was just zip tied to the post and i didnt have the pump mounted on anything just plonked on ground.. was a easy run actually.. 11kg grain batch sparged for 60L of wort and made up to 120L with water and 8kg sugar... got a reading of 1052 after sugar addition.. forgot to check the wort but was sweet.. the spent grain was deffinatly sucked dry
