Well, if money isn't an issue, I'd recommend getting a CFC or a plate chiller while you're at it.

But on the topic of tiers, my homebrewery system list can be sorted by tiers (just click on the heading "Tiers"). Maybe that could be a source of inspiration for you.

When I decide to build a brew stand it'll be 2 tier. BUT, I'll gravity fill the MLT from the HLT and pump the MLT and BK (single pump). Then switch hoses and pump from BK to fermentor. This will make it even easier on adding grain and stirring the mash. Now I just gotta talk SWMBO into a pump....and 2 more keggles...
