As far as the BYO issue, your HBS should sell them. If not they carry them at my Barnes and Nobel, they may at yours too.
I've always been a fan of erector sets. Where are these sold? What brands to search for? I feel good about anything not involving welding.
What about the Brutus 20? I just read that and it looks even simpler than the 10. Any opinion on the sparging for the 20, which essentially recirculates wort back over the grains until equilibrium between the HLT and MT?
Is clean up on this straightforward? Tippy tump MT seems important to build in.
