I can't post a picture right now, but I took a sanke, removed the spear, cut the bottom out and flipped it over, a valve with a 2 inch tri-clover will attach to the ferrule that the spear came out of. Put a false bottom in and wrapped it with reflex insulation. Now I have an all stainless 15.5 gallon mash tun with no deadspace, that only loses .5 degrees over an hour

You know you're a homebrewer when "show me yours and I'll show you mine" is talking about your Mash Lauder Tun.

the cost was the cooler and supply line, everything else I had, The stand will hold it at 45 degrees solid as a rock. Please ignore the ugly welds, I was in the dark and ran out of gas.

I like the keg mashtun. It holds a lot, easy to sanitize, will never taste like plastic, you can heat if directly during the mash if needed and it can be used as a boil kettle too. See photo for creating false bottom from the cut-out top. There is a stainless scrubber that acts as a filter around the dip tube, which is attached to a ball valve by compression fitting. Parts list- Used keg $50, ball valve and adapter parts (brass) $29. Lid- pyrex, from thrift store- $1. Scrubber 69 cents. I used a metal cutting blade on a grinder to cut the hole in the top and matched a lid for the diameter. I cut about a 10" hole. The metal cutting bit for the valve is just a metal cutting 7/8" hole saw on a mandrill (cost $8). My boil kettle is another keg. On that I just use a racking cane to transfer the beer into carboys for fermenting. It works fine but some people like to add a valve on the boil kettle too.

I have since moved to a more stable cooler and slightly modified my tun, but basically the same.
