So I finally have a cooler this size that I would like to convert into a mash tun. I was wondering what size hole did you drill in the side? Also, what size nipple did you use (length and diameter) ? Thanks in advance.

Hmmm... I want to say that everything is based on 1/2". The CPVC is half inch... Without checking, maybe a 5/8" hole? What I did was basically grab some 1/2" CPVC in Home Depot and fit everything there. Then when I got home, I just used my $6 hole saw set from Harbor Freight.

Sorry to bring up an old thread, but I would like to know how these ~1 gallon test batches converted to 5-10 gallon brews. Were they consistent tasting when they were up scaled or did you notice more bitterness with the hops and what have you?
