Default Coleman Xtreme 52 Qt. Cooler on sale at Kmart

I know this has become a popular cooler for mash tun conversion. They are usually pretty pricey at $55, but Kmart has them for $32 right now.... so I pulled the trigger and picked one up.

Just a heads-up for anyone thinking of pulling the trigger on one of these

Decent Deal, I got mine for about $26+tax at Sears a couple years ago during a backyard sale.

Perfect sized MLT IMO.

If you are going to set up BeerSmith or any other brewing software, I emailed Coleman a while back to find out the exact weight of the cooler and they responded with 13lbs, therefore when setting up your equipment 13 is the magic number for this cooler.

The bottom is flat on the 52 Qt. No wheels.
