Default New system build

Ok so I have 3 keg and plan on making a new system. Forgive me I don’t to all the terms for systems (rims, herms) and frankly don’t really know the difference yet. I will describe the system I plan to build and please and tips on what could improve it.

HLT 15.5 keg,
1/2x50 SS coil for recirculation mash / cooling
Sight glass
Drain Ball valve
Top fill ball vale
Mash Tun 15.5 keg
False bottom with dip tube
Side drain ball valve
Sparge arm

BK 15.5 keg
False bottom (just in case any sediment made it from Mash tun)
Side drain ball valve
Sight glass

2 pumps (not sheer on what kind yet)

Water filter for filter water as I fill the kegs

All fittings will be quick release

And I will be running gas with three burners

Please add tips on what should be changed for improvements. I plan on building this throughout the summer as funds allow.
i plan on brewing 10 gal

Boy have you opened a can of worms... This could take 50 pages of comments to answer...

There is plenty of information here on HBT and all over the web explaining RIMS and HERMS. As for design ideas there are plenty of those here too.

Good luck on your project. Post pics, we all love pics.
