Ok.. that makes sense. But the guy doesn't seem to have a ton of extra equipment compared to some of the other set-ups I've seen.

Is that effecient enough?

That's a very similar setup to mine (and a lot of peoples'), and I hit 79% on my last batch.

You don't need a fancy three-tier system, you don't even really need to fly sparge (although you can get a little bit more efficient if you do).

Check out my equipment from the link below. You'll see how lo-tec it can be.
I hit 80% last time.

Would this suffice for a mash/lauter tunn?

I just finished my second AG with MoreBeer crushed grain. Hit my OG the second time,but not the first. I figured it was my fault the first time. Going to purchase my own crusher to identify the real problem.

Just finished my second AG session with MoreBeer crushed grain. Missed my OG the first time, but right on today. I figured the first batch was my problem not the crusher. Who knows.

I tried to find that exact cooler for myself. Called all 7 Crappy Tire stores in Calgary and none had them in stock (even though their website said that 3 would). I guess coolers are a bit out of season in Canada right now!

If you find one, I would be curious to know.

Checked out Home Depot, Lowes and even two auto parts stores, but can't find what you guys are calling a stainless steel braid. From the picture in the website (http://cruisenews.net/brewing/infusion/page1.php) it looks like something used to reinforce fuel lines or the hoses in a car, but I can't tell for certain. I'm curious to know where you would find one. If you know...let me know.

Go to the plumbing department, that is where the stainless braid is located. Use a piece of water line connector. You have to cut the plastic tube out and adapt it.
