I use my homebrew pump for vorlaufing/recirculating, transferring from my mash tun to brew kettle, chilling with a recirculating wort chiller and transferring to my fermenter. You could also use a brewing pump to recirculate ice water for your wort chiller. Pumps are a necessity if you want to use a plate chiller. You really need one to properly clean and sanitize your plate chiller.
1/2″ fittings seem to be pretty standard for homebrewers. This pump has a 1/2″ outlet, but a 3/4″ inlet. If you’ve standardized on 1/2″ you may need a reducer.
