I think everyone was discussing only 5 gallon batches, not 10 gallon batches.

Well, yeah, I like my beer REALLY thin.......

No, the discussion was for both. Rich had said that if he upgraded to a ten-gallon system he could use his 5-er for a sparge tank. That's what I was replying to.

Well I went ahead and bought the parts to outfit my 5 gal. I used the the info from flyguys excellent post. The cost was just under $25.00 for the for the miscellaneous plumbing parts. I have it all assembled and tested for leaks. I will use this for a while and then probably make a 10 gal. version as suggested by many.
Thanks again to flyguy for all the great info. His info made this project a breeze.
