I'm looking at getting the round rubbermaid 10 gallon cooler:http://www.rubbermaid.com/Category/Pages/ProductDetail.aspx?Prod_ID=RP091235
I've also been looking at the 60 QT Coleman Xtreme cooler. The big draw of the rubbermaid is I'd like to purchase a good false bottom for it instead of constructing a manifold.
Does the rubbermaid have enough capacity to make 10 gallon batches?
there's a table out there that i'm sure will surface in this thread.
I have that same exact cooler and I will say, if you make beers over 1.060, it is not enough.
I tried to make an imperial stout at about 1.110 on it, and I ran out of space, and it was a 5 gallon batch.
the table is nice and has efficiencies and gravities. if no one brings it up I'll take a look.
back to work!
