10 Gallon Rubbermaid Cooler – $44.87 at Home Depot + Conversion Kit Review

home depot cooler mashtun homebrewing

via Home Depot.  Model FG1610HDORAN 10 Gallon Rubbermaid Cooler.  This would make a dandy mash tun or hlt.

This is available for $44.87.  That’s been the case for a while and it’s worth mentioning again all on it’s own.  The difference I noticed today is… in the past (at least when I’ve looked at it), this has been available for in store pickup only.  I noticed today that it ships for free with a $45 order.  Add on 13 cents to qualify for free shipping.

Igloo Breeze 48 Quart Cooler from Wal-Mart for just $15.88.  In store pickup is free.  I don’t think this has a drain, so if you were going to do a mash tun conversion, you’d have to drill a hole or use something like a Brew Bag BIAB Bag –  in the correct size and dump the cooler to drain.  Or, you could use this as an actual cooler and take your homebrew on the go.

Stanley Adventure Cooler, 30 Quart

30 quart stanley

Stanley Adventure Cooler, 30 quart, Green.  Insulated lid locks in cold.  Leak resistant lid gasket seals to to help insulate and keep liquids in place.  Leak-proof drain plug.  Accepts padlock.  Leak free construction, pro-grade,  Extra height accommodates 2 liter bottles and more.  Durable construction – can use the top as a table, step stool or a seat.

This is probably more of a cooler as a cooler vs a cooler-to-be-converted-to-a-mashtun sort of a cooler.  You could use this to keep your homebrew or favorite draft beer (and more) cold.

I have a smaller version of this cooler (16 quart) and it is sweet.  I got it because I wanted a rugged, high quality cooler and didn’t want to fork over an arm and a leg [See: Yeti Coolers].

I’m a big fan of Stanley PMI branded coolers, growlers and such. I have… 16 Quart Adventure Cooler, 64 ounce insulated growlers (in both Hammertone Navy and Hammertone Green), 32 ounce insulated growler in Hammertone Green [Two of These], Stainless Steel Flask, Nesting Containers and Stanley Adventure Camp Cook Set and their 64 oz non-insulated growler.
