Mash lauter tun (MLT)

A MLT is a vessel that holds heated water and grains in order to convert the grains' starch into sugar.  I use a standard 10 gallon water cooler for the mash tun.  It is relatively cheap, and the insulation helps it retain temperatures well over an hour.  I replaced the original spigot, and made a manifold using 1/2" copper tubing.  This acts as a filter allowing me to drain (lauter) the wort while leaving the grain.  I also have a 5 gallon version of this, which I primarily use when I brew indoors.
