10 Gallon Cooler to Mash Tun Conversion Kit… $68 + Hands on Review

cooler conversion kit

This Brew Hardware kit includes everything you need to convert a 10 gallon Igloo or Home Depot Rubbermaid Cooler to a Mash Tun.

This kit includes…

  • 12″ stainless steel domed false bottom with upgraded large ID connection elbow
  • One piece (Brew Hardware custom designed) machined bulkhead with interior barb
  • 2 piece stainless ball valve – can be upgraded to 3 piece
  • Required length of high temp silicone tubing
  • Does not include cooler or barb/camlock.  Barb and camlock fitting options are available under accessories on the right side of the screen.

from Brew Hardware: “What makes our kit different than the competition? Ugh, now we have to brag just a little. The bulkhead we include in this kit is custom machined out of hex bar stock to our exact specifications making it extremely simple to install and leak free from day one. It’s not a bunch of off the shelf parts made with half a roll of teflon tape. We also use a high flow elbow connector at the false bottom which also features a custom made smooth bore retainer. Long story short, we’ve held off on offering cooler false bottom kits for a long time until we had all the high end components described here.” [full product description]

Options are available both for an Igloo 10 gallon cooler and for Home Depot’s 10 gallon cooler.   A complete converted option is also available.  That includes the cooler along with your choice of connection fittings.  This is Flat Rate Shipping (with $150 order) and Free Shipping (with $299 order) eligible.

This is the conversion kit I use and it’s… awesome.   tn_img_0322-300x225Check out my Hands on Review.

Want to later make a mashtun… no problem just thread in our stainless screen. want to fully drain your boil kettle? No problem, just add our kettle maximizer! This allows for unlimited flexibility.

Weldless kit includes a 1/2″ Full Port ball valve and a 1/2″ barb. All fittings are made from 304 type stainless steel for a lifetime of corrosion free use. Full installation directions included. This product replaces our WL101. Manufactured by Fermentap.

You will need to drill a 1″ hole in your kettle for installation of this weldless spigot. We recommend a Step Drill Bit for this.

$60 Off ThermoBarrel Insulated Stainless Steel Mash Tun

THermoBarrel_G2_e3b73b1a-e8da-4350-a0a8-ef3ee417f3e6_1024x1024

The ThermoBarrel by Chapman Brewing Equipment is a fully insulated, stainless steel mash tun. For decades brewers have been limited to modified plastic coolers as mash tuns. For those brewers looking for an alternative, there’s finally an option. The stainless steel serves several benefits. The foam insulation design gives the tun heat retention comparable or better than most plastic coolers after stabilization. It’s long lasting, it prevents any leaching of plastics, and it’s easier to clean.

Comes with a torpedo tube and 2-piece ball valve, so it’s ready to use right away.

Details:

  • Insulated Stainless Steel Mash Tun
  • Recirculation port and thermometer port
  • Ports 1/2″ NPT and 3/8″ NPT compatible
  • Torpedo tube and 2-piece ball valve included
  • *Cannot be directly heated from an external source

Chapman Brewing is discounting the 10 gallon ThermoBarrel by $60.  That makes it $199 and it ships for free to US addresses.  No coupon code is necessary, you should see the discounted price on the product page if this is still going on.  15 and 20 gallon sizes [full lineup] are also available, although they are not discounted.

Reader Feedback (a comment on this post) from HBF Reader Adam: “This is an amazing piece of hardware. I lose less than 1 degree over an hour mash, and less than 2 over a 90 minute mash. I know coolers work great, but stainless lasts a lifetime. And at this price, including hardware and shipping, you really can’t go wrong.”

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.
