I'll bet Gary Mason's request for comments is going to generate some good
controversy.

My opinion is that he's got an almost perfect plan. That use of glass and
steel is usually the most trouble-free in the end. A wort chiller is a
must, too.

I have some doubts about the grain-mill attachment for the KitchenAid.
Cracking grain for mashing is different than for other uses probably.
It may be better to crack it somewhere else or buy it cracked.

My advice is to forget partial mashing. Just brew a couple extract batches
to get the bugs worked out of the process. During this phase build a
mashing and lautering rig and start using that as soon as it's done. It's
most likely that he will have to mash to get the fermentable/unfermentable
ratio that he's looking for.
