I've set up two cooler mash tuns before with two different style bazooka screens. My keggle mash tun uses a NorCal full diameter false bottom. The keggle mash tun is the one I like the most of the three. Not sure what I'll get for the next step up, depending on the target size. I might not have much choice there.

Okay, I'm just going to use the tubing I got from Home Depot. Rig it up and make it work... go all redneck on it!

Just be sure to make SMALL cuts/holes for the grain to filter through... OR look at the threads from people who have made them with success. IMO, you can buy a bazooka screen for short money. Get that installed and go from there. Trying to make something different can lead to more headaches, frustration, and throwing of mash tuns.

I can just use my dremel for that, right? I already have the idea in my head, don't need to look it up...

I don't understand....you think I'll **** up? I'm going to make this work with what I have to work with, maybe tonight I'm not thinking clearly about it... but once the kit arrives and I read their instructions.... compare that to what I know... it'll work. I got this. I'll ask if I need help.

And I don't mean I was squishing whole squirrels through the grain masher. I meant after they are skinned, de-boned, organs and glands removed. You are then left with just a thin layer of meat, fit right through the machine so that's what I though it was for... pardon my mistake....

If you have a set of feeler gauges, see what the tightest gap you can get on that squisher is. If you can't at least get to .039", do NOT use it.

Milling grain requires more precision than squishing squirrel flesh.

And you continue to use incorrect terms... A 'grain masher' is a mash tun, where you mash/process the grain into sweet, sweet, wort. NOT where you CRUSH the grain (the mill or crusher)...

Bobby please stick to beer making. Squirrels, turtles, knomes and such are best left to another thread.

Make your beer with the beer kit you bought. It will be good.
