I got a rubbermaid 50qt cooler (one of those wheeled DuraChill), and I was wondering if it would be good enough to do 5 gallon batches on it.
I'm worried that it will lose temperature too fast because of the big head space that will be left with so little grain and water. If this turns out to be the case, is there any work around? Maybe doing small decoctions to bring the temperature up to the right level again?
What do you think?
Thanks in advance.
ps. correction, its a Five Day Endurance wheeled cooler.
