I want to build the same mash tun system that NB sells for $199. I assume all rubbermaid coolers at various sites are all the same even though they seem slightly different. But Home Depot sells theirs for $22 each.
I assume this is the same cooler? Also, would you recommend buying the bronze valves or spend more for the stainless?
I am approaching stepping up to all grain. I am taking the class at UC Davis next month, so I am only a few weeks away from stepping up.
Lastly, I bought the blichmann boilermaker but it is my only kettle, so I figure that the extra mash tun parts aren't really going to do much for me. Coolers are prob better.
