Great deal. You can't beat the Brutus 10 design as a starting point. And then there are a million different variations posted around here that will give you ideas to help you tailor the design. I would suggest your first "do" is to look at as many pictures of other rigs as possible and find out what is important to you.

This thread looks designed for you. I know it worked great for me on my first welding project.

Pumps work harder than gravity. I am going from full gravity to that single tier now and plan to brew with it for the first time this weekend.
