So I finally have a cooler this size that I would like to convert into a mash tun. I was wondering what size hole did you drill in the side? Also, what size nipple did you use (length and diameter) ? Thanks in advance.

Hmmm... I want to say that everything is based on 1/2". The CPVC is half inch... Without checking, maybe a 5/8" hole? What I did was basically grab some 1/2" CPVC in Home Depot and fit everything there. Then when I got home, I just used my $6 hole saw set from Harbor Freight.

Sorry to bring up an old thread, but I would like to know how these ~1 gallon test batches converted to 5-10 gallon brews. Were they consistent tasting when they were up scaled or did you notice more bitterness with the hops and what have you?

Resurrecting this old thread because I'm bored and looking through the photo forum. I dig the stout experiment! I might do that with my next 5 gal batch of stout. Might be cool to do with an IPA as well and using different dry hops, oak, fruit, etc.

Brewing 1 gallon batches seems pretty cool too. My wife and I just had a baby a couple months ago so right now I have zero time to brew. Maybe I can do this so it cuts down on the brewing time and I can stay inside. Or maybe I'm just going through serious brew withdrawal...
