I think my next DIY homebrew project will be a cooler based mash tun. What are the pros and cons of choosing one over the other?
I had a round one.
Now I use this rectangular Coleman xtreme.
I switched to batch sparging when I made the bigger MLT. I like it much more.
My advice, read up on batch sparging. It's easy and effective. A rectangular is easier to store. They stack fairly well.
"Now I use this rectangular Coleman xtreme."
Conroe, what kind of braid do you use in that xtreme? I like the rigidity and what seems to be an end cap.
It's a PEX pipe with holes drilled in the bottom. Here it is after much abuse with the bottom of the launter device showing.
