This morning I see now just how much I was mixing up the terms. So something to extract the sweet goodness out of the grain.... Crushing the grain is something entirely different, I see. Gonna try to get that rigged up better today. Might be a little more complicated than what I got thrown together now. I got a big cooler and some tubing and some stainless steel metal pieces(not even gonna try to name them)..... It seems like it'll work, but, hey, won't hurt to look up how others built theirs....

I am rethinking mine and it's starting to look more like yours now. Thanks for the pics.

You can use one of these in a round cooler with great success. I built a 10 gallon RubberMaid cooler mash tun with one. Just install a 1/2" ball valve through the cooler wall (use the hole the spigot uses originally) and a couple of fittings to go to a 1/2" barb. Then use a short piece of silicone tubing (1/2" ID) to run from the internal barb to the fitting. You can push the ends of the fitting so that they lay flat on the cooler bottom (so turn them 90 degrees at the brass fitting side) while keeping the outlet of the fitting in line with the barb. IMO/IME, a LOT easier than trying to fabricate some convoluted manifold that will take you far longer (and probably not give you any better results).

Inside the cooler will look very similar to this, just with the T screen instead of the straight one.

Sorry, I was just mixed up on the terms, I meant to crush the grain, I didn't think the mash tun part was that important, as long as I got it filtered and sparged(I think those are the right words), but rethinking that today and trying to get set up and ready.
