Hi all....I know there's a chart from a past post that Bobby M posted about what size mash-tun one needs for a given brew size, but I still have a question. Should a 5 gallon rubbermaid cooler be big enough for a 9# grain bill using a 1.5 gal water-to-grain/pound ratio? Oh, ...I batch sparge..not sure if that info is needed. Thanks

I rock the 5 gallon Gott MLT and can fit 12.5lbs of grain @ 1.25qt/lb. Barely.
