Ok...it sounds like you have a pretty good start with equipment.
I see two options from here that don't involve buying extra equipment.
1. Extract - We can get you set up with a recipe that utilizes dry or liquid extract. Some of these will use steeping grains and some don't. The extract is just a concentrate that has resulted from a company mashing grain for you. It is the easiest form of brewing but has a couple draw backs. It is difficult to make a light colored beer and many people say that extract beers have a "twang" taste.
2. BIAB - BIAB stands for Brew in a Bag. It is all grain brewing without a mashtun. You use your brew kettle to perform the mash. All you would need to do is go to your local hardware store and pick up a paint strainer bag like this
Which way would you like to go?
Also, do you have a particular style of beer you would like to make?
