It works for both five and ten gallon coolers and is what I use succesfully for my MLT. Your keggle is ideal for a boil pot and your enameled pot can work as your lauter tun. As far as sparging goes you can fly sparge with the copper tube or skip it and batch sparge which is what I do. Search this website for the differences. Sounds like you need a couple burners and you are ready to rumble!
Thanks. Most of what I see here is what I'll assume is batch sparging (in a cooler with a drain assembly). Seems a lot easier to me.
I need to be careful with the burners. SWMBO is very tolerant. The entire house smells of Rhino Farts from the 32 gallons of Apfelwein I have fermenting in the basement, but if I melt the Trex deck I suspect I'll push her over the edge.
I may need to leave the keggle in the attic for now. I've been looking at the stovetop sparging method I saw here and I may start there. She's already used to cleaning up what I miss after my partial mash over boils.
