Good job on the tutorial! I just got my gas cooker in today (early christmas) so I am super excited about getting to it.

Is your MLT 5 or 10 gallon?

You have a manifold of some sort. Look around at Mash Tuns in the Equuipment section. There are several varieties people use ranging for SS Braid, to Copper, to CPVC to SS False Bottoms in Keg MLTs

That particular 5 gallon MLT has the http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/chea...version-23008/ on it. It's basically the stainless braid from a toilet or sink water supply line, and a through-wall bulkhead, connected to a ball valve.

I also have a 60 quart rectangular cooler for the big brews. The large cooler uses a CPVC manifold with lots of little holes in it. Either type of lauter manifold works fine, as long as you batch sparge. For fly sparging, the braid manifold is reported to be less effective.
