Default Show off your mash tun

(if a thread like this already exits please delete this post)

I had an issue recently which is forcing me to redesign my mash tun and i am interested in seeing what others are using. I would like to see pictures of your mash tuns (and maybe steal some ideas).

Coleman 50qt Extreme cooler. Brass ball valve attached to 5' braided SS supply line.




Used the ground wire from extra romex inside the SS braid to stiffen it and keep it in place while stirring (Not shown in picture). Put in return line for recirculating mash.

No pictures, but I use a SS braid in a round mash tun. On the inside of the SS braid is a long SS spring wire to prevent it from collapsing. Got the idea off a thread on here, it works amazingly and I've NEVER had to worry about it collapsing.
