Anyone have a conversion kit for a 5 gallon rubbermaid cooler? I am looking into wanting to start partial mash brewing with going into all grain brewing down the road. Thought I would see if anyone had a used set before buying online. If you don't have a set to sell but can recommend a set online for me to look at or have advice on where to look that would be appreciated. The closest LHBS is about 2 hours away.

Thanks,

mick

I'd take a look at this thread, and print out the parts list.

Then head to your local hardware store.

Are there any final recommendations to the parts list for this conversion kit? Reading through the long list of replies for this assembly I noted at least a dozen different recommendations on materials to buy and thus I am not sure if the initial listing of materials is still the best way to go.

Thanks...

Mick

Mick:

I used pretty much his initial list and have not ran into a problem yet.

The only modifications I made was to make sure to find stainless steel worm clamps, and I did not use any tubing in my braid. Havent had any problems yet.
