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.

Hands On Review: Brew Hardware’s Cooler Mash Tun Conversion Kit + A Great Deal on 10 Gallon Igloo Cooler

cln_img_0338

Brew Hardware’s 10 Gallon Beverage Cooler Mash Tun Conversion Kit

Brew Hardware is known for innovative, high quality brewing gear.  They have a good amount of gear that is their design and only available via Brew Hardware.

Brew Hardware’s Mash Tun Conversion Kit is available in two versions.  One that works with Igloo’s 10 Gallon Seat Top Cooler and one that works with Home Depot Beverage Coolers.  Just pick your preference on the product page.  This review specially looks at the Igloo Cooler version.  My assumption is that the Home Depot/Rubbermaid version is very similar.


Get Current Pricing

  • COOLER TO MASH TUN CONVERSION KIT – no cooler
  • 10 GALLON COOLER MASH TUN WITH FALSE BOTTOM – includes a cooler
  • COOLER DEAL: 10 Gallon Igloo Cooler – via Amazon – As of this posting this cooler is marked down to just $39.88.  That’s just 81 cents shy of the best historical direct from Amazon price I found, notwithstanding Lightning Deals or coupons. Shipping is also free to many US addresses. Prices, shipping and availability can change quickly. Please note that product prices and availability are subject to change. Prices and availability were accurate at the time this post was published; however, they may differ from those you see when you visit Amazon.

cln_img_0292What’s included: 12″ stainless domed steel false bottom – with high flow connector, 2 piece SS ball valve, True Weldless Bulkhead with 5/8″ barb and a section of 1/2″ ID high temp silicone tubing.

cln_img_0295A comparison of the high flow elbow (bottom) vs my old false bottom (top).  I would consider my old false bottom (top) to by a pretty standard size.  As you can see.. there is a huge difference in size.  That can only lead to better flow rates and fewer clogs.  To my knowledge Brew Hardware is the only shop to carry such a thing.

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

1/9/20 10 AM Central: This has dropped to $39.88.  This is a great deal on a great cooler.  It’s also the best price I’ve seen on this in years.  I had to go back to late 2015 to find a better price.  and even then, it wasn’t much better.  This is just 81 cents shy of the best historical direct from Amazon price I found, notwithstanding Lightning Deals or coupons.
