  • Double loops on lid allow it to be secured to handles on both sides for added water security

I use this same cooler for my mash tun and it has worked great for me for years.  It holds temperature very well and it has held up like a champ.  It would also make a good HLT.  This has a lid that’s pressure fit (not threaded).  Since the lid isn’t threaded, you can fit a temperature probe underneath [See: Hands On: ChefAlarm Thermometer].

If you want to convert this to a mash tun…. considertn_img_0322-300x225 this conversion kit from Brew Hardware.  Check my Review

  • Cool Riser Technology for improved cooling performance
  • Slotted lid for easy stacking
  • Swing-up handles
  • Can hole up to 76 12-oz. cans

 

Note from HBF: From what I can gather it doesn’t look like this cooler has a drain.  That would make this more of a “cooler as a cooler” vs a potential mash tun, at least in my book.  If you did want to attempt a conversion on this you’d have to drill a hole or use something like a Brew Bag BIAB Bag –  in the correct size and dump the cooler to drain.

It doesn’t look this has a drain, so this may not necessarily be great for a mash tun.  This is more of a cooler-as-a-cooler vs a cooler-to-be-converted-to-a-mashtun sort of a cooler.  You could use this to keep your homebrew or favorite draft beer (and more) cold.
