Default Igloo Cooler

I see a lot of posts about igloo ice cube's used for mash tuns. and I found this listing for an ice cube...
http://www.basspro.com/servlet/catalog.TextId?hvarTextId=65835&hvarTarget=search& cmCat=SearchResults

Is this too small for a 6gal mash? 50 Quarts?

sorry I think in liters...and after a few beers I don't do conversions...


looks like a good price for $30+ shipping

6 gallons = 24 quarts. 50 is plenty! You could even do a 10 gallon mash in that one. I do 15 gallon batches with a 60 quart Ice Cube - it's the bare minimum, but it works!

Cool, I like the set up I saw on a few of your earlier post regarding this subject. I am currently doing my mash in a 5gal cooler that has no outlet so I dump it into two 5gal buckets (one with holes ) to sparge. regarding this Igloo cooler, do you need to drill through it ,and if so what do you use to seal it?

You'll probably want to drill a hole and add a ball valve. Look at the Kewler Kits available at www.northernbrewer.com. They are basically the same as weldless kettle fittings but designed for coolers.
