54 Quart Coleman Cooler

54 Quart Coleman Cooler via Cabela’s.  Tall enough to hold 2 liter bottles upright.  Made in the USA.  Has a drain.  Check it out – Here

Note that this has a channeled drain.  While that’s handy for draining water from this, channeled drains can prove tricky to install a braid or manifold system in.  One option is to use a Brew Bag.  They make cooler sized BIAB bags that can be used in place of a false bottom/manifold/braid.  In this case, it’s not really BIAB, it’s acting as a mash filter.

Reader Tip: 60 Quart Igloo Cube Cooler… $24.44

Thanks to HBF Reader Chris for this tip!  There are 8 Ways to Connect with HBF

Igloo 60-Quart Ice Cube Roller Cooler

Igloo 60-Quart Ice Cube Roller Cooler

Walmart has this Igloo 60 Quart Cube Cooler for just $24.44.  In store pickup is free.

Holds up to 90 cans, handle and wheels, handles molded in the sides, recessed drain.

This does have a drain.  I know some models of these types of coolers have recessed drains that make it difficult to install a bulkhead and false bottom or braid for use as a mash tun.  Maybe someone that has this specific model can chime in.  If anything this is a bargain for use as just a cooler.  It would also, probably, work for use with a 2.5 gallon keg.

Reader Tip: 2 Gallon Cooler for Mini Mash – $9.09

Thanks to HBF Reader Jonathan for this tip!  There are 8 Ways to Connect with HBF

Igloo 2-Gallon Legend Jug

2 Gallon Cooler – Partial Mash & Small Batch Mash Tun

Two gallon cooler, marked down to $9.09 at Wal Mart.  In store pickup is free.  Shipping is free with a $50 order.

Jonathan Says: “This would work great as a mini mash tun with a mesh bag to do small batch all grain (1-2 gallons) or even to use to make starters.”  HBF Note: As far as use for starters, my guess is Jonathan is talking about doing a mash for an all grain starter.  You’d want to be careful and maybe avoid fermenting a starter in this due to scratches and crevices in the spigot area.
