Thanks Ben for posting this. I'll be checking out my local target ASAP, and see if they have them. (HLT Baby) If anyone else is interested, they are also available online from Target, or through Target via Amazon.com, in case you need some books too.

Yea, I saw them on Amazon first. Then I noticed it was shipped through target...So I went to target.com and looked it up and the site said it was available at all the targets near me. I went to the closest one and they had 2 out on the shelves so I picked em up. I didn't see any more, but they may have more in the back.

I think through Amazon/Target online there was $16 shipping to me also.

Just so anyone that is interested knows, these coolers DO NOT have spigots in them. However, they do have the little indentation on the bottom just like the ice cubes with spigots.

Does a 6-gal carboy with airlock fit in there?

I don't have a carboy, but im pretty sure it won't fit with the lid closed. It will fit width wise, if you just want to throw some icewater around it or something.

I'll drill a hole in this bad boy and add another stainless ball valve from the LHBS.

Isn't there a set of pics by Yooper with a self-made foam insulation lid around... typically the neck and airlock are poking through the new lid?
