I was already planning on doing that, the first 2 kits at least, I ordered 4 because they were on sale. Perfect the process, then maybe I will try out the monstrosity or probably just build a new, proper mash tun.

The obvious downside is that you can't ever show it off to anyone without them subconsciously humming the theme from Deliverance, but I have a corona mill and my false bottom is a $2 sink strainer, so I salute your ingenuity.

I've got burlap bags duct taped to it now, for insulation on the outside. And also, the oxygen/hydrogen machine works way better than oxi-clean, but same idea. It would not be rust beer. Hmm... maybe it could work...

I thought sparging was the same thing as adding boiling water, but just adding enough to keep temp is not called sparging, I see.

Okay, when I see whether or not it works, then I'll show pictures. Because, as we've already gone over, then you can laugh but you can't tell me it'll never work. Humpf!
