My plumbing is right against the concrete wall....2 - 3/4 copper lines spaced 2" on center. I didn't want to built a 2" bulkhead around the pipes so just framed straight down

Fill it.

You might be a good candidate for something like a JM spider insulation. Filling voids like that with batts is a real PITB
