Would anybody have any recipes I could do in a 3 gallon size or happen to know any good recipe books for this type of brewing?

Find a five gallon recipe and use 60% of everything except yeast. Use the whole packet/vial still.

Would a recipe have to change whether it is made with a mashtun or the BIAB style that i'm going to do?

no. you can still use whichever method you would otherwise. With scaling recipes you just reduce/increase the amount of ingredients to the batch size. so from 5 gal to 1 gal you would 1/5 of everything with the same ratios of each ingredient.

Thanks sooo much you guys are really a great bunch of people.

I might just head up to my local brew store tonight. I've never really seen to much all grain equipment around but i know they've got some hop pellets so maybe they'll have some grains in the back room or something. Thinking bout making a good ole Brown Ale

Iif they don't have the grains on hand ask if they can order them for you. You might have to wait (I did) but if they can come in on a regular shipment you may not have to pay shipping.

The limitation my place had was they could only get Breiss pale malt and it was quite a bit more expensive than Rahr pale malt. It was still better than getting it shipped UPS.

I bought my pot here:
http://www.foodservicewarehouse.com/...-32/p4854.aspx

It appears they do ship internationally. And the pot is nice, heavy, thick, and durable. Make sure to pick up a lid, too, should you want one. If you want a different size than the 32-quart, just look under aluminum stock pots. Lots of choices for decent prices.

If you go aluminum, make sure to put a layer of oxide on the pot by just boiling some water in it for a little bit. It'll get a little darker below the water line. That oxide layer helps protect the pot from acids.

Actually if you look at their shipping page it clearly states "We do not ship outside of the United States at this time.

Bummer... hope you find a good pot, OP! I'm sure there's a place that will ship to your location.

One thing you could consider: I began my all grain adventure doing BIAB with two relatively cheap bayou classic aluminum 5 gallon pots, which worked great. I could do two mashes if i wanted to do a really strong beer, or just use one pot to mash in and the other for sparging. When I felt like it was time to go beyond BIAB, I simply modified one of my 5 gallon pots to turn it into a nice mash tun. I bought the weldless brewmometer, a weldless spigot, a bazooka screen, and drilled a couple holes, and presto! I even slightly increased the size of the steam hole on the lid so that I can stick my long probed thermometer into the mash to get another temperature reading from a different spot. It's a pretty sweet mash tun. I then just bought a used 7.5 gallon pot to do my full boil in.

Just think about how you may want to upgrade your setup in the future and see if you can buy something that can be upgraded.
