OK..After maybe 10 batches or so..I have noticed the plastic of my round cooler begin to warp and expand in several places. The botom being the main problem. It has explanded up and this basically makes my SS false bottom get a stuck mash all the time. I usually preheat the cooler with 175 to 185 degree water and think that this high temp casue this to happen..Anyone else have this problem? This has esentially made the false bottom worthless and makes me want to go into a square cooler with a copper braid for the future......
