This is tmy current no-sparge setup. It consists of a 15Gal kettle, a 10Gal mash tun (bottom cut out with stainless false bottom), two pumps, two 10Gal coolers for HLT (if I sparge), ice tank for chilling, immersion chiller, 40-plate chiller and a shop crane for lifting.

First photo is mash config - the 10gal kettle sits inside 15gal kettle
Second photo is boil config
Third is chilling config using the cooler filled with three bags of ice and water

I constantly recirculate the wort during mash. The return is via a camlock in the lid and I use a mash recirculating return from Bobby M. My second batch was Ed Wort's Pale Ale and my OG hit the bulls eye.

Oh come on! I've been done at least three times already!

BTW, Great setup, simple & bullet-proof. My control panel will look very similar as soon as I finish my brew setup (again)!

Here's my simple and compact setup. It's a perfect counter size and is a little over 17 inches wide.

Skidsmint, I like the compactness of the whole mash setup. The custom length hoses are nice and neat. That has 5 star wife approval factor all over it.
