I picked up a 40qt Coleman Extreme. Does anyone have a parts list to convert to a mash tun? Thanks in advance.

Try this for replacing the original valve: http://www.midwestsupplies.com/kewle...s-no-barb.html

And this for the screen: http://www.midwestsupplies.com/the-bazooka-screen.html

You can always order a sparge arm later.

Salute!

there should be a ton of threads about cooler conversion. the methods and materials used in all those builds should work for any cooler really. you've got the option of a steel braid, cpvc, or copper (or others) for your manifold. just kinda up to you how you want to go about it and how much you want to spend. i've been happy with my copper manifold, but know others who are perfectly happy with the stainless steel braid.

Just did mine last week, only the 36qt though, if you want I can take it apart and measure for you.

Page 2 is the final product.

Thanks for the help. I found this video which may have fixed my problem, that is, the 2x 1/2" conduit locknuts.
