Building a mashtun
Is a 5 gallon igloo cooler with a floor manifold sufficient for 5 gallon batches? I'm ready to step over into the all grain arena and I've already got several 5 gallon coolers but no 10 gallon.
Anyone ever maxed out a 5 gal cooler making a 5 gal. batch? If so, what gravity were you trying to attain?
