Default Igloo Cooler

I'm gathering all the supplies I will need for all grain brewing. I have a 10 gallon yellow industrial round igloo water cooler and was wondering if anyone has used these for a mash tun? And if so could you give me a parts list to make the conversion? Your help will be more than appreciated!!! Thanks!

The 10 gallon cooler will work perfectly!! At least mine does, and I absolutely love my false bottom. Here is a link to a parts list for the valve assembly as well as false bottom. It's only one place to get this stuff, there are hundreds!
Good luck, cheers!

Yep I use the exact same industrial Igloo cooler, yellow with red lid. And it works great. Check out this thread for help with the conversion. The example makes use of a braid, but you can swap it out for a manifold or false bottom as well.

Thanks guys for your help. Everything worked out perfect! It's now been fermenting for 36 hours and yeast are working hard! Again thanks for your replies!
