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 out my Review of that great setup

Possible homebrew application: Use to insulate to your compatible mash tun or HLT to help maintain temperatures.  Cooler hack… I use this for my coolers (regular ole cooler as a cooler, not mash tun).  I cut a piece to fit the top of each cooler (fitting it to the cooler size as tightly as possible) and place on top of food or ice to provide an additional layer of insulation.
