Making a Mash Tun MLT – Start All Grain Brewing!

What’s a Mash Tun?

A mash tun is a container that holds grain and warm water.  The warm water activates enzymes in the malt and converts complex carbohydrates to yeast-friendly simple sugars.

A mash tun can be as simple as a bucket. Many homebrewers convert coolers to mash tuns.  Those have the advantage of insulation. That insulation helps maintain a steady temp throughout the mash process. Kettles are also regularly used as mash tuns and there are also some purpose built stainless mash tuns. An example of that is Ss Brewtech’s InfuSsion Mash Tun.

Components of a Mash Tun

  • A container – Examples: bucket, cooler, kettle, keggle or a purpose built vessel
  • Filter device/mechanism – Examples: false bottom, bazooka screen
  • Ball valve and tubing
  • Optional – sparge arm, thermometers
