I brewed a version of the first all grain beer that I ever brewed with my friend Dave. We bought the kit from northern brewer back in 2011. I wanted to brew it again but increased the grain and added Munich malt to create a beer similar to Bells Oberon ale.

Chilling the wort.

My homemade wort chiller. 50 ft of copper.

The wort cooled down in 15 minutes. I transferred to the fermenter. I had to much boil off and ended up with only 4.5 gallons of beer. I was shooting for 5.5. Original gravity is 1.061, a little higher than I wanted.

Draining into the fermenter and helping oxygenate the wort! Next pitch the yeast and wait!
 
 
Here are a few pictures of my King Kooker. I used a plywood box to raise the 2nd tier so I could transfer hot water to my mash tun without lifting. I've used it a couple of times and it works great. I also raised the whole cooker so I could put my fermenter under the boil kettle.
 
 
This is my 10 gallon, gravity fed brew rig. It is a King Kooker that I bought from amazon last year. I modified it by raising the 2nd tier burner so that I can heat my strike water and transfer it to the mash tun without lifting it or using a pump.
