A great way to get into all grain brewing! These 5 gallon coolers work very well as mash tuns for five gallon batches as you'll notice barely any temperature loss throughout your 1hr+ mash. Comes with a stainless ball valve cooler kit and a 9" stainless steel false bottom. The barb size on the mash tun for the output is 3/8". All metal parts are stainless steel. This is a complete mash tun and all parts are included so that it is ready for use. Some assembly is required. You can also select the option above to add a 3" dial thermometer with a six inch or two probe to the mash tun.
This makes the critical process of monitoring your mash temperature a cinch. The thermometer is a weldless dial thermometer and is installed just like the valve. We will drill the Igloo cooler and install thermometer. The thermometer is not included unless selected above. Our staff highly recommends the thermometer as it is an easy way to keep a close eye on the mash temperature without having to open the lid.
Your final option is to choose the ball valve. The standard ball valve is made up of a SS valve and a standard 1/2" bulkhead that will attach to the nipple that attaches to the false bottom. The upgrade to the heavy duty ball valve has the same SS valve but has the heavy duty bulkhead that is easier to install and allows for more secure and leak proof attachment.
