My store, for some reason, offers a $3.08 rebate to go with it bringing the price down to $24.91.
Already have one setup for a mash tun, looks like I need a new camping cooler!

alien, did you have to drill the outside wall of the cooler to fit in the pvc brace? if so, did you use a step bit?

Yes and yes. But I wouldn't recommend the step bit because when I did it I drilled out a bit of the inner hole too, which I didn't mean to do. If I did it all over, I would probably just snip the hole out with nail scissors.

Very tempting - wish I had a Menard's closer!

Thanks again to Alien and GrogNerd. I finally put all of my equipment together and did my first All Grain batch last weekend. Everything went really well! I ended up buying the hardware and putty that GrogNerd recommended. I took out all of the stock Coleman stuff and just used the putty to seal it. I stuffed a little bit of it up into the cooler walls and then completely covered both sides of the fitting. The cooler wall feels super strong and best of all no leaks!

Here are some photos.
