1) Can everyone with experience in this matter send me a description of their
approach to using kegs as kettles. I am familiar with Byron Burch's method
and the method described in Zymurgy's 1985 special all grain issue, but I
would prefer to avoid the picnic cooler / slotted copper tubing lauterand instead make a combination mash / lauter tun by insulating the mash tun and
fitting it with a false bottom. My main interest is economy! Also, I would
also prefer to tap into my natural gas line, but it is quite far away from
where I could set this system up. Is this a job for a plumber, or can I do it?

2) I would like to take an informal poll on what is the best (most thorough)
book on mashing. Please send your opinions to me and I will post a report on
the results. Please include three or so reasons for your choice.
