Great Deal: 10 Gallon Igloo Cooler – $39.98 Shipped

I use this same cooler for my mash tun and it has worked great for me for years.

10 Gallons, UltraTherm Insulation, Impact Resistant, Reinforced Handles, Pressure Fit Lid (not threaded), made by Igloo.

As if this posting: This has recently sold right around $50.  It’s spiked as high as $65.77 in the last 6 months, with an average price of $51.97.  It’s down to $39.98.  That’s just 91 cents off the best historical Amazon price I can find.  Shipping is free.  This is a great deal on a great cooler.  Check the product page for up to the minute price and shipping info.

Igloo 10 Gallon Seat Top Beverage Cooler

The seat top lid on this cooler is handy.  Since it’s not threaded, you can run a thermometer under the lid.  Check out these pictures of a brew day, using ThermoWorks ChefAlarm (Review) Thermometer Thermometer…

The ThermoWorks ChefAlarm tracking mash temp like a champ.  It keeps a running high and low tally so you know what has happened over time.  It also features both high and low alarms.

Does the 48 Quart Cooler have a drain (for use as a mash tun)?  The specifications don’t say one way or the other, but, if you look through the Q&A Section multiple people say that the 48 quart cooler has a drain.

Coleman 100-Quart Xtreme Cooler (Blue)

100 Quart/25 Gallon Xtreme Cooler from Coleman.  Xtreme = extremely durable ice chest that keeps cold for an extremely long amount of time.  Thick 2 inch insulating walls with a lock tight hinged lid.  Lid has a gasketed seal and is insulated.  Guessing all that translates into… this should keep mash temperatures well.  The cooler also has two handles and a channel drain.
