Wow sweet somebody else is going to give it a shot. Let me know how it works out for you. Is your cooler cracked or still in good shape? If its not cracked you may have to split it with a razor blade to get it to pull out easier. The liner comes out fairly easy but takes a little musscle to pull it of of the cooler. Definatly keep me posted on how it goes for you. If your gonna go with a weldless fitting I recomend putting the pot in the cooler first and then drilling your hole so it lines up perfect with the orginal. Also only cut the hanles off just above the rivits. I left the rivits in with the small pieces of the handles to avoid more welding costs.

I had been looking for some time for this, and even posted a thread!

Thanks for taking the initiative, and thanks for the advice. Will post when I finish. FWIW, my cooler isn't cracked yet but is warping badly. Fitting will be marked and then welded in by a friend.

I use this same idea, only on a larger scale... and without the cooler.


Works great! Stainless is hard to beat when it is time to clean.

WortMonger,
I like what you did -- that is really nice. Can you provide details on what the material is and how you accomplished this?
Thanks!

Be sure to weld the fitting in most of the way so it will go in the cooler with out sticking out.

Here are the pics of my sparge assembly that I built. The pieces are all copper and the tri clamp fittings are stainless. I used a wort aerating spray tip as a diffuser for the water which works great. The first pic of the water running through it is on low and the second is on high flow.

Thanks!
Here you go! Very fun project to do. This was mainly on the HLT, but the mash tun was just more simple a fabrication seeing as I didn't have to install a ETC or anything but insulation and shooting it with truck bed liner.
