A hell of a lot.

I think I could easily get 20 lbs of grain in my 10 gallon cooler, and a keggle is almost 15 gallons, so you should be able to go up to 30 lbs, I'd think.

This is not an fact, just my hunch.

I did 32 lbs one time but that was pushing it to the extreme. Once it swelled it was right at the top.
