Default Trying to switch over from extract to all grain, could I get a hand?

I have done some research but I am still a little confused on the switch over to all grain.

1. What additional equipment will I need?
2. How much will this cost?

Thanks so much.

T

Very little if you go brew in a bag. What type of equipment do you have?

I have a 5 g carboy, another 6.5 gallon plastic bucket, and then a bottling bucket. I got the true brew gold kit, so it came with bottle capper, siphon, etc...

I started with the same kit. Started by using the bottling bucket with a sparge bag inside then wrapped with a blanket. And using a 4 and 5 gal pots on stove to boil the wort. Then made a keggle to boil all at once on a propane turkey fryer stand.

I don't mean to be rude, but you seem to be elusive about what you already have. How can anyone recommend anything without knowing what you have? Everyone's set up is different, so you can't expect a "one size fits all" answer. The above link seems rather informative to me. Perhaps a little more research?

tek, Ive been doing a ton of research. Reading a bunch of articles. I read the article before, I just am still confused. The other comment wasn't too helpful, and yours, well, speaks for itself. But I will now research the brew in a bag method.

PS- I said I have
" a 5 g carboy, another 6.5 gallon plastic bucket, and then a bottling bucket. I got the true brew gold kit, so it came with bottle capper, siphon, etc..." I now know I need a mash tun just trying to figure out how I can get one without paying 100s of dollars.
