Hello all,

I would like to cobble together something resembling Yooper's Lagerator but am having a hard time finding the cooler that he uses. I believe it is the Igloo Ice Cube 90. Walmart lists it on their website but it is always out of stock. Has anyone ever made the lagerator with a different cooler? Which ones? How does it work?

Dunno 'bout the cooler, but......

Psssst.....Yooper is a "she"

And a really nice lady, too!

BTW, don't feel bad; she gets that a lot.

I got mine at Wally World. Spring is here, so they should be getting some in.

Recently, I made one from scratch. I used 1" foam board and cut the pieces to size with a box cutter. Then, I used REAL duct tape (aluminum backed) to put it together.

Right now, it is holding a light lager at 53*F, steady, just using a frozen 2 liter bottle of water.
