Hi,
Sorry to but in. I recently made a mash tun following the instructions in the book BREW WARE by Lutzen and Stevens. They suggested CPVC pipe. the only difference between mine and yours is that I have two cross over pipes going across the width of the cooler. Following the advice on your thread I narrowed the pipes so that they were further away from the walls. If you are going to connect plastic hose the spigut I would suggest you use hose clamps. I did a dry run using boiling water and I noticed that the plastic hoses became soft and I was afraid that they might fall off the spigut.

Regards

David

Hey, you're not butting in, just contributing to the forums! Thanks for the input BTW. This had crossed my mind regarding the manifold attachment to the back of the tap.

I've improved the manifold further. Here's the final result prior to soldering the long arms (with lead-free solder of course):

Yep, the wonders of a good forum! I'm also on a UK forum receiving some good advice.
What forum is that? I'd like to check it out. Nice looking mash tun btw- I've got to come up with something similar for my round cooler. right now I'm using a SS hosebraid. It works, but not as well as I'd like; I get channeling, reducing efficiency.

Hmmm, if I had to guess I would guess JimsHomeBrewForum. BlightyBrewer had mentioned this one before (am I right?) He's right, its a good place too.

Michael_Schaap got it in one, the "other" forum I am a member of is indeed JimsHomeBrewForum. The administrator, Jim, also has some good pages on Home Brewing tips and techniques (for All Grain)...just follow the link at the top of the page.
