As a brewer in Logan you may be jealous of my Glass Carboy hauler. It makes heavenly beer.

I like the Coleman Extreme 52. The drain is even with the bottom so it drains better than the others. Too many people have a braid connected an inch or two above the bottom in there MLTs.

I use a 60qt square cooler. It works great, and ave enough room for really big beers. Typically get between 75-80% efficiency.
