10 gal cooler mash tun limits
 
How much grain can you squeeze into a 10 gal round mash tun? Will i be able to do 10 gallon batches?

I would say no to any 10 gallon batches in that cooler

I personally have two tuns, a 15 gal and an 20 gal cooler

biggest I was able to push the 15 was a 27 lb grain bill

There should be a sticky floating around (I'm on the ap, half tipsy, half tired, 100% lazy) titled something how much your mash tun can hold, or this is how big your mash tun needs to be...

This is a great reference. I think Bobby_M created it. I had 23lbs (1.060) of grain in my 10gal Igloo this weekend!

And you would be wrong.

Apparently you weren't trying very hard. :)

To me once I get above 22 #'s my efficiency really takes a hit
