A full boil is required for All-Grain brewing, so a boil kettle with an 8 to 10 gallon capacity is highly recommended.

    Excellent Review by EKGoldings
    Well, I've brewed for many years using a cooler for mashtun, Phil's false bottom and steam kettles. This kit is sweet, I converted the hot liquor tank to a second mashtun because I have a steam kettle I can use for HLT. Depending on the grind, I've gotten 74-83% efficiency. Setup is simple after looking at the video and I've not had a leak. Temperature is pretty stable during mashing over 60 minutes. I don't use pumps so can't comment on fitting size, but my lautering has been sweet, fast and painless with this setup. (Posted on 1/16/15)
    Works for My 6-11 Gal Batches Review by Paul
    I typically brew 10-11 gallon batches mashing in one of these coolers. I can get up to 1.065ish starting gravity with these coolers for an 11 gallon batch. I like the false bottom elbow because the bottom rests right on the mash tun floor, so there is very little water left in the cooler after transfer, as long as you set the cooler level. One improvement would be to increase the inner diameter of that elbow and the barb fittings. The flow restriction reduces the performance of my transfer pump. If everything were set up for 1/2" ID tubing, this setup would be perfect. I get very little (a couple drops a minute) to no leakage at the bulkhead, which is great. The second cooler can be a hot liquor tank, storage for cleaning solution, or a second mash tun if you want to mash two batches at once. (Posted on 10/18/14)
    Great Product Holds Temp Well Review by Michael
    Brewed on a cool day held temp very well. To the last reviewers comment, I thought I got wrong false bottom as well but their new kits all come with the same size false bottom like 11.5". (Posted on 10/16/14)
    This is a great set-up Review by Todd
    I brewed with this set-up yesterday and we were very impressed, assembly was very easy, I would really like too see a bigger false bottom (I think they shipped me the smaller one maybe for the 7 gallon kit) other wise it would definitely be 5 stars (Posted on 10/12/14)
    Great Product Confusing Directions Review by Cory
    This has really cut down on the active time for my all grain brews. However it took me a couple readings of the directions to figure out how exactly everything went together and the process for using this equipment. Once I figured out the process though it was an amazing purchase and I would recommend it for any home brewer looking to improve their all grain brewing. (Posted on 7/31/14)
