Some New Equipment

>> Saturday, August 05, 2006

Here's some of my new equipment for my switch to all grain brewing: a Rubbermaid cooler for my mash tun, a wort chiller, and a Phil's sparge arm. Just a tip, if you're planning on building your own mash tun, Sam's Club is selling the 5 gallon water cooler for $18.64 (item #918901). This is by far cheaper than I've seen them anywhere else. I've seen some online retailers charging as much as $50 for these. The mashtun will be getting some stainless steel plumbing fittings. I've ordered them but haven't received them yet. Assuming they fit and don't leak, I'll provide a parts list. FYI, the parts were quite a bit cheaper than most of the packaged cooler conversion kits I've seen.
