I picked up an older 5-gal Igloo beverage cooler from my parents' house, that was just sitting in their basement taking up space. My plans are to convert it to a HLT for fly sparging. Do I need to use the more expensive stainless parts, or are brass/plastic parts from Lowe's/HomeDepot sufficient?
Also, What kind of hose should I use for that?
