    As advertised.
    Works as advertised. Check your false bottom size if you decide you may want to use this as a mash tun from time to time.

    Works Great
    Wish it had gallon marks in it. Had to make a stick for measuring.

    Love it. From box to brewing ready takes 5 minutes
    It's a standard cooler. But they give you all the stuff you need to be set up for brewing and transferring wort/hot water. Had no issues. The only 'issue' I can think of is they give you two washers to put on the inside of the cooler, and for the life of me could not get both on there and then the nut to tighten. So I only put one on, but I didn't have any issues that I can see. Highly recommend it. If you go the DIY way for this, it'll save you ~$5-10. For me, it's worth the stress avoided by ensuring I had to get all the right stuff.

    Great Hot Liquor Tank
    We wanted to improve the efficiency of our BrewEasy system. We added this hot liquor tank so we could easily batch sparge. We are pleased with the result. Our efficiency improved to consistently over 90%. We sparge with 170 degree water. Heat the water to 200 degrees and transfer to the hot liquor tank we are set to sparge.

    Is there any kind of screen / filtration with the cooler?
    P B on Mar 20, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello,

    There is not a screen, filter, or false bottom that comes with the Cooler Hot Liquor tank. This is for your sparge water. For a Cooler with a false bottom for conducting your mash, you will want the Mash/Lauter Tun http://www.northernbrewer.com/fermenters-favorites-cooler-mash-lauter-tun I hope that this helps!
    Can you recommend a submersible heater for the 10gal?
    A shopper on Mar 27, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Hey! I'm not sure what you're attempting to do, but just for awarness, the insulation is pretty good on these. I taking a lot of measurements while brewing. One of them is the temp of the mash when I start it, the other is the temp when I end mashing. I've never had more than a 2 degree drop (and thats in the dead of winter). Again not sure what you are attempting to do, but I dont think you need one?
    Is this BPA free?
    Richard B on Sep 24, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I can not honestly answer this question. Upon a search of Fermenter's Favorite BPA Free, Item comes up with a description from Northern Brewer that it is indeed BPA free. Click web site and there is no description in the product listing about BPA. Northern Brewer based on item description claims it to be BPA free.

    R O on Feb 20, 2016

    Can i buy this in 5 gallon size?
    A D on Jan 13, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hi Allen,

    We only offer them in the 7 and 10 gallon sizes, but the 5 gallon size will also work. I have a 5 gallon one myself, that I bought from ACE hardware. We do sell the rest of the components separately; false bottom, bulk head, etc.


    What is this made of? Is it BPA free? Has this product been tested for leaching with hot liquid?
