I have this exact same issue. Heated opinion on either side - maintain the liquid temp or maintain the mash temp. Frankly, I've never seen a well supported answer either way.

I think all of the Igloos warp at one time or another. I like the kettle screen for a SS filter. Easy to unscrew and clean. When I mashed in an Igloo I used the screen + a false bottom. Why not?

If your water is that bad, I would use RO water. Might not be worth investing in an RO system just for brewing.

You shouldn't be getting much citrus from that hop bill.

You might try swapping out yeast to something completely neutral. Try WLP001 or S-05.

There is no reason to use a 5g igloo. A 10G is pretty much required for a 5G batch. The difference in price is about $25, which is cheaper than buying twice. Get the 10G.
