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.

56 Quart Coleman Cooler – $37.11 Shipped, New Record Low

41Tq98i4C-L

This 56 Quart Cooler from Coleman has recently sold for $50.  Back in July it spiked up to $58.64 for several days.  It’s down to $37.11.  That constitutes a new record low Amazon price.  Shipping is free.

from HBF Reader George: I have this cooler for storing beverages and I don’t think it would make a good mash tun. First off, it doesn’t have a drain hole, so you would have to drill one. Second, it has a shelf inside above the wheels. If you tried to use any of the space above that line you would get channeling and I suspect poor efficiency.  Again, this is just my conjecture, but I don’t think I could recommend it to someone looking to make a mashtun. Possibly a hot liquor tank, if you wanted to drill a hole to add a ball valve.

10 Gallon Mash Tun and HLT All Grain Setup – $199.99

aihmashtun

Adventures in Homebrewing has marked down this Two Cooler 10 Gallon All Grain Setup down $70 to $199.  I’m a fan of these coolers.  I’ve used one as a mash tun for years.  The “Seat Top” feature is particularly useful because you can run a temperature probe under the lid (See: Hands on ChefAlarm Thermometer for more info).

You get two 10 gallon coolers (one used as a hot liquor tank one used as a mash tun), stainless false bottom, stainless tube (goes from false bottom to ball valve) and ball valves on both.
