I started with a two burner 3 vessel system (burners under the HLT and BK). Coming from coolers and batch sparging, I went with a kettle because I was afraid I would melt my cooler. Insulated the kettle and it worked okay, but I really wanted to maintain temperature in my mash. I decided on a direct fired MLT RIMS setup with Blichmann TOP controllers. This involved another trip to the welder to add a windscreen and burner support. Suffice it to say, this would have been less expensive to have added when I first had the stand built. That's why I am a fan of building a stand once to meet anything you think you might ever want to do. This is not quite as necessary if you know how to weld. But if you are having it built, go with 3 burners. Pay once, cry once.

Why 3 burners:
3 burners are used for the following applications:
HERMS
Direct Fired RIMS
E-RIMS tube with burner fallback
Most E-RIMS systems do not have a third burner.

Well, here's mine. Now you've seen at least one single tier with 3 burners.

I batch sparge most of the time. By the time I'm draining the first runnings into the BK, I have the BK fired and the HLT has my sparge water up to temp and waiting to pump into the MLT. Works great, impossible without 3 burners. I heat my strike water directly in the MLT, and use the MLT burner to maintain and raise the mash temp.
