Today I received my all-grain equipment and I am hoping to starting brewing in the next few weeks... I still need to build a poor-mans 3 tier system... . The equipment is 2 10 gallon rubbermaid coolers...

There's another garage door there that was open. It was windy that day.

I just got myself a cooler and a big 11 gallon pot so I can go all-grain. Unfortunately I have a bunch of DME I bought, so I kinda want to use it up. Probably just do a couple partials (which I do anyway) in the cooler to get a feel for it before trying a full grain recipe.

Why wait on a 3 tier? Use a tailgate or some milk crates and make some beer!
