Reader Tip: Twisted Root Design Cryo Coolers on Woot

Thanks to HBF Reader Nathan for this tip!  [8 Ways to Connect with HBF]

Today 9/21/17 only, Woot has a selection of Twisted Root Design Cryo Coolers on sale.  Price start at $169.99.  Multiple sizes and colors are available..

At this size and price range, I’m thinking this would be more of a cooler-as-a-cooler vs a cooler-as-a-mash-tun.  Although, if you convert one of these to a mash tun, I would love to share some photos and a step by step.
