Okie so I am getting my Keggles and my next batch will be all grain.. Been reading all I can about Mashing... and have a few questions.

Do I need to mash in 1 container then transfer the mash to another with false bottom to sparge?

Can I just mash on the false bottom and sparge in it from a cooler?

Does anyone know of a good How to guide? (online preferred I am confused by how it is explained in the book... Or could one of you long time brewers write a up a short "how to" It would be much appreciated.

Yup, ya sure can, In fact most people mash/sparge in the same container.

This is one of the best links on line to simple batch sparge all grain brewing.
