Too late for a gingerbread beer recipe?

I'd like to have one ready by Thanksgiving time... I heard these are very sweet beers and need a long time to age out. Anyone have a partial mash recipe they'd be willing to share?

No, sorry. I intend to get copper tubing, but I'm debating between getting the ones with brass garden hose fittings at the top or the ones that just have vinyl tubing attached with hose clamps.

3/8" vs 1/2" hose barb adapter for Mash tun ball valve?

Is there any material difference between these two sizes? Is there a benefit to having a slower/faster flow from the mash tun?

I think I've decided on a 3 gallon cooler. Anyone recommend Igloo over Rubbermaid, or vice versa? They both have very different dimensions. The Rubbermaid is tall and narrow, whereas...
