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

Fall is a Good Time To Buy… Coolers!

Coleman 48-Quart Cooler, BluePictured: 48 Quart/12 Gallon Cooler via Amazon – this picture and link are for illustrative purposes only.  I’m not suggesting there is a current deal on this cooler, although there may be.

In my experience fall is, generally speaking, a good time to get a great deal on a cooler.  These are fairly bulky and retailers may want to clear out stock to make room for winter related gear.  Check your local retailer and try some of the links below to see what’s available.

If you find a great deal… let us know!
