I finally decided to upgrade my mash tun from a 5 gal to a 10 gal igloo cooler.

A while back I stumbled onto a thread here that involved using a step drill on the cooler to use 1/2” threaded pipe instead of the 3/8” and didn't use washers and the stock gasket from the spout. I have been searching and reading threads for the past hour and cannot seem to find it again.

I'm looking for this since I have had leaking problems with my current one and actually cracked the cooler from over tightening while cleaning.

Does anyone know the build I'm asking about or recommend an alternative to the standard nipple/stock gasket/ss washers?
