More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

When you’re new to brewing, knowing what to buy & how to put it together can be challenging. Making a mash tun out of a beverage cooler is one of those projects you might not be ready to tackle on your own. Here at MoreBeer! we’ve gathered all of the components, and built a cooler mash tun for you!

This 10 gallon Cooler Mash Tun with Thermometer includes our AG330 mash tun with the addition of a built in thermometer. The 3″ thermometer with 6″ probe is preinstalled in the MoreBeer! shop. Installing a thermometer on an insulated cooler mash tun is tricky because you have to drill a larger hole in the orange plastic without damaging the inner white plastic wall. However, it is worth it. Now you can see the temperature of your mash without taking off the lid!

Mash Tun Includes
Best quality Rubbermaid insulated beverage cooler made of FDA approved food grade plastic
Stainless steel 1/2″ ball valve installed in cooler
Stainless steel perforated false bottom pre-installed in cooler
High temp, FDA approved Silicone tubing
Stainless steel tubing connector with 3/8″ barb
