I bought a 2 gallon igloo cooler and folding steamer to make the same mini mash tun that revvy did here
. I ordered a couple partial mash kits from austin homebrew and the grain bags are 4.25 and 4.3 lbs Would I be able to do these in my 2 gallon cooler or should I upgrade to coleman 5 gallon?
Ok, I just found this site http://www.krotchrott.com/calc.html
and under "Can I mash it?" I put 4.3 lbs and it says this will take 1.69 gallons, so I think I should be good. Also I am going to be changing the mlt to use a stainless braid instead of the strainer.
Anybody have anything to add to this, or does it look like I should be good to go?
