Then I can drain the mash wort out straight to my new boil kettle then sparge with what was in my old kettle that has been heating during the mash time.
I am thinking of doing the same - converting my 8G BK to an electric HLT .. but I think I will wait to get 2 15G pots so I can do 10G batches..

Yesterday I picked up a 10g cooler mash tun and legal keggle. Just need to mount the elements and buy a few pids.
