I used that exact same Northern Brewer System for many years in an all stainless steel hardware version.  Absolutely loved it and served me well for many years for infusion mashes. (Went to RIMS couple years ago.) I have no negative comments about this system.  I would recommend it to anyone starting all grain brewing.

I've also used this same NB system for about 2 years before deciding I wanted to go Stainless Steel with Blichmann's last November... I can also recommend that same cooler system. The biggest beer I did in was a Russian Imperial Stout from Jamil's style book... I had around 22 lbs of grain in it.

ckpash88 - Blichmann kettles.  I now have a 20 gal. Hot Liq Tank, 15 gal. Mashtun, and 20 gal. boil kettle.  While I enjoyed the coolers for a awhile (I started out with a 5 gal. cooler setup, then moved to 10 gal cooler setup), I decided I wanted to have a little more room in my mashtun and do double batches when I have other brewers over for a brew session. 

The coolers helped get me hooked on homebrewing.. enough to want to take my brewing experience further.
