Are you dead set on the Gott? Amazon.com has the 50 Qt Igloo Max for $31 USD.
I'm waffling on square (Igloo cube), round and rectangular. I can get rectangular coolers inexpensively locally, but I'm worried about the bed depth when brewing small batches. Ebay has less expensive Igloo 10 gallon coolers, but shipping is too expensive.

OH, and I remember the Canadian winters well. Used to live in Toronto and traveled to Montreal, Edmonton, Calgary and Winterpeg fairly regularly.
Yeah, but that was probably before global warming hit. We've only had one major snowfall this year. At least this year we will have snow for Christmas ! Provided it doesn't melt next week... It was over 50F here today. Banff gets 30% less snow than it did in the 1970s. But Fernie gets about 50% more !

Getting back into brewing...

You could always buy a small cooler for the small batches and the larger for your big brews.

Bummer about the warmer weather. I love the cold. I just hated driving on the de-Scarie during a meltdown.

When we find out how many bodies you buried in the basement, will we be more shocked or disappointed at the number?

If you've got Ace hardware in CA they will order them for in store pick up. I'll be picking up 10 gal Gott tomorrow for $47 USD. Tore my hair out looking for a 10 gal. Stopped at 15+ different stores in madison wi area, w/ no luck.
