Seems like I have lots of reading ahead of me, and I guess i need to step up from 1 gal brews, I have a 3 gallon mash tun to start me off will that only be good for 1 gallon brews?
I do 5 gallon batches in a 5 gallon cooler. It's tight, and I double batch sparge, but it's possible. So, you should be able to do 2.5-3 gallon batches in yours. You could do 5 if you supplement with dme/lme.
I do 1-3 gallon batches frequently to test experiments.

If you scale up, get a 10 gallon. My 5 was free, but I wish I had a 10 every time.
