12 Gallon Mash/Lauter Tun - Northern Brewer
We’ve taken our Classic Mash Lauter Tun and upgraded it to provide the best possible brewing experience. Our new model features thick insulation, a large 12+ gallon capacity and the first ever integrated thermometer. The large capacity will easily handle any 5 gallon brew you can throw its way, from session beers to Imperials, and it is even large enough to accommodate 10 gallon batches up to a gravity of 1.065.
It also features all stainless steel fittings including our proprietary bulkhead and Titan False Bottom, this system is designed to last. Steel reinforced and silicone gasketed mounting holes ensure a tight, leak-free hardware fit, and offer easy installation with top of the line brewing performance.

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

Happy so far with this Tun and recommend it.
A few things to note:
The thermometer is at the 4-5 gallon mark, if you're mashing something of less volume it won't help you.
The thread on the lid seems to stick, not as smooth to screw and unscrew as I'd like.
I have had a stuck sparge but it eventually cleared.
Can’t seem to stop grain from going through false bottom. I’m new to all grain brewing so maybe it’s something that I’m doing wrong.
Works great. As long as you make sure to pre-heat sufficiently you will find your rest temperature stays where you want it. Brewed 5 and 10 gallon batches so far without issues
I am not very mechanically inclined so I had some issues with the sparse directions with the mash tun. A video or more directions would be great. Mash tun is awesome though and I would highly recommend it to anyone!
