Default Nalgene Bucket for Measuring Boiling Water

http://www.usplastic.com/catalog/item.aspx?itemid=24309

I'm thinking of this to get accurate measurements of strike and sparge water. Anyone know of a problem with Nalgene? The mfg website shows it as being sterilized in an autoclave at 250 F, so it should hold up?

I don't see why it wouldn't hold up. It's food safe and can withstand the temperature. It might feel a little "squishy" at that temp though.

I'm not trying to bash your idea in any way, but I use a graduated pitcher that I bought at walmart for $1.

Those nalgene buckets look a bit more pricey.

Lol wow yeah they do, I didn't even notice that. Wierdboy probably has the best idea. Cheap plastic pitcher. Bigger the better I guess. They might have them in 4 qt.

Holy Cow! $60 each - minimum of 6? Guess I'd better go to Wal-Mart.
