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.

YETI Hopper Coolers on Woot!

YETI Hopper 30 or Hopper 40 Coolers

About, from Woot: “There are some adventures where we just want to grab our stuff and go. That’s where the Hopper comes in. It’s the first 100% leakproof portable cooler. We’ve engineered it the way we do everything — to keep ice for days and be tough as nails. So don’t call it a soft cooler — it’s anything but. The Hopper is loaded with features you won’t find on any other cooler and built to go the extra mile, whether that’s down a wild river in a kayak or on a floatplane trip to a remote salmon stream.”

  • DryHide Shell: Hopper’s high-density fabric is waterproof and resistant to mildew, punctures, and abrasion. The liner is made from a FDA approved food-grade material.
  • ColdCell Insulation: Closed-cell foam offers far superior cold-holding to ordinary soft coolers.
  • HydroLok Zipper: Borrowed from survival suits and hazmat protective gear to make the ultimate waterproof, airtight closure.
  • Tie-Down Points: Six D-ring tie-down points give you multiple ways to secure the Hopper.
  • HitchPoint Grid: Easily attach pretty much anything to your Hopper. Bottle openers, carabiners, or accessories like the YETI Sidekick Gear Case.
  • Double-Stitched Carry Options: With a detachable shoulder strap and three different sets of reinforced handles, you’ve got options on how to make the load easier to carry.
  • Your Choice: Hopper 30 or Hopper 40

As of this posting, Woot has both 30 and 40 quart YETI Hopper Coolers starting at $169.99.  I don’t see a lot of deals of YETI coolers.  This is available today only, while supplies last.  Check Woot for current offering and price.

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.
