No, that's $35 MORE than the base price of 20 - making it a really bad deal

You are right. The web site is kind of deceptive.

here's 1 for $41.95

My wal-mart has several of the 12 gal Igloo Cubes. I have heard that many have this and it works well. If you're hard pressed you might try that route.
Spend the extra money up front instead of eventually owning two coolers.

Or you could just buy one 52 quart rectangular cooler from Wal-Mart for $15, batch sparge and cut an hour off your brew day.

You can batch sparge in a 10 gallon cooler.

To me it's still a no-brainer. I would go with the cheaper rectangular cooler. I haven't used the Gott style cooler, but doughing in and stirring the mash looks like a pain, especially in a 10 gallon batch.

I've looked at the mash tun situation quite a bit.

First of all, I am leaning towards coolers over SS vessels because of cost and heat loss. The center of the mash might stay toasty warm in a SS vessel, but if you want uniform temp, the vessel needs to be well insulated. For me, thats a cooler.

I'm leaning towards round (Gott style) coolers or Cubes over rectangular coolers because I fly sparge and thus I need some bed depth to avoid channeling.

I don't think dough in will be a problem.

I'm going to need several sizes of coolers. I'll be brewing 3,6,12 and 15 gallon batches when I'm all set up. I could be mashing anywhere from 4 to 30 pounds of grain. I think I'll be buying 3, 5 and 10 gallon Gotts as well as a larger Cube.

So if I plan on batch sparging, the rectangle coolers are where it's at? that's kind of nice as I already have one of those coolers, all I'd need is a manifold and a new bulkhead....that will save me some cash.
