How big of a mash tun do I need is a relatively common question. The answer depends on what type of beers you want to brew (higher gravity = more grain), how large of batches you want to brew and what technique you will use to mash. Brew Hardware has put together a chart and related guide for estimating mash tun size required based on efficiency and mashing method.
