Pros: Keeps a very steady temp
Cons: can get heavy to move when full
Recommended? YesI found this cooler at a flea market and thought I should upgrade to All Grain. This keeps mash as strike temps for just about 60 mins if you dont remove the lid. Makes mashing very easy with the cooler valve mod.

Pros: Holds constant temperature pretty well. Spigot easily replaced.
Cons: Cannot mash more than ~13lbs grain at once.
Recommended? YesThis works great for 5 gallon batches that don't require more than 12 or 13lbs of grain. More than than and you just can't fit enough water to make a good grain:water ratio. Needs to be preheated or use higher temp strike water because the insulation will absorb a lot of heat. Spigot unscrews and is easily replaced with a ball valve without further modification. Mine has a stainless braided hose attached to the valve. I did a double decoction and sparged an 80% wheat mash without rice hulls or other filler with no problems.
