It's cold outside, so a 3 gallon batch of barleywine on the stove top sounds like a good idea. Whenever I try a partial mash with the mesh bags and colander I have, I just make a huge sticky mesh...so I need a tiny lauter tun instead...

So what to use? Ah, I've got an old Two Hearted Ale Mini Keg lying around...jig saw off the top and take out the spigot..

Steal a valve, washer, and nipple from my kettle, and o-ring and fitting from my mash tun...

Put together...

This where it will go...

Voila!

Remnants of the mini-mash, about 2.25 lbs of grain...it'll prob hold 3 lbs with sparge water easily...

Cheers!
