Hey everyone. As I am progressing along in my build, I've came to the time to insulate my mash tun. I'm looking for creative ways to insulate it without it just wrapped in a thermal blanket. I want it to look as good as the kegs that I've been slaving away at to get that nice mirror look. Lets see what you did to yours.
