Default I need Hans Brinker to brew!

I use an Igloo Cube for my mash tun and today when I dumped by grain into it I saw that some of the grain was coming out the drain hole. "No problem", I think, I'll just put the drain hole cap back on, except $%^! it is not there!

Today I folded some aluminum foil and used a screw clamp to block the hole as a stop gap but I'd really like something more like the OEM plug.

Can anybody out there in HBD-land who has had a similar disappearance recommend something to plug dat hole?

A rubber stopper of the proper size shoved in from the inside works well.

Igloo parts are available;

Great idea about the stopper; that's why I love HBD. I found a 6 pack of 00 size lab stoppers on Amazon with Prime for $4.49. That should be the right size since the drain is 1/2" ID.

How they make a profit on such a transaction with 2 day shipping is a mystery.

Amazon is the shiznit! It takes at most 3 mouse clicks and two days later BAM, at your door!
