Here's my baby. Fashioned from a 15 gallon HDPE drum.

I like the cap in the end of your braid. Pretty slick and simple.

Awesome, I can't believe I missed that the first time I saw your post.

This is my mash tun, this is my gun. This is for brewing, this is for fun.

Thank you,I was looking for a nice way to weigh the braid, and this seemed the best option IMO.

I've gone through a bunch. This is most of them.



I did my first AG in this zapap.


My old fly sparge set up. I got the bottom for Jaybird. I beat it over a paint can to dome it up.



I heat molded the dip tube in the PEX. This worked very well.



This is my current MLT. It's been used over a hundred times now. Works like a champ. It is a little better than a braid. It has siphon to less than 1/4 inch and is more rigid.

Technically speaking, it's a Lauter Tun, because I direct fire the mash on the stove-top.

can anyone offer me advice or a finished product where this is used as a MT? it will be part of a HERMS setup, so it will not be direct fired allowing me to put in a bottom drain.

Here's mine, a 70qt Coleman Xtreme cooler. A 1/2" SS bolt weighs down the free end of the 3/4" SS water heater braid.

Invert the keg and use the spear opening as your bottom drain utilizing tri-clover fittings. Then cut the bottom (now the top) of the keg out to dump in grain. Cutting through the rubber coating may get ugly.
