Product details

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.

Full Kit Specs:

  • 12 gal. mash/lauter tun (16.75” diameter x 22” tall)
  • Integrated thermowell with weldless thermometer in Mash/Lauter Tun
  • Stainless steel features: 1 Isoflow Bulkhead, 1 ½” ball valves, 1 Titan® Universal False Bottom
  • 3.5’ of ID Clear High-temp tubing
  • Storage Dimensions- 16.75” diameter x 22” tall and 15 lbs.

Mash tun

Much nicer than my self made 10 gallon - holds heat and can do a monster barley wine mash - only downside is the lid is difficult to remove

Awesome All Grain Brewing Starter Kit, Manual temp control is challenging

Kit is great starter for All Grain! However, manual temp control is really challenging. I've since ordered parts to build a temp controller using NB: Dual temp controller, Immersion coil heat exchanger (typically used for wort cooling after boil)), and boil kettle with valve at bottom. I'm connecting a solenoid valve - normally closed and gravity flow of hot, near-boiling water through copper coil in Mash tun with temp controller opening valve when under temp. I'm hoping this design reduces challenge of temp control, eliminates dilution of wort by adding water directly, and multiple hours of manual temp adjustment. I plan to control “overshoot" if needed by restricting flow through the copper coil. A couple other lessons learned: volume-control is a big uncertainty with All Grain brewing for proper beer strength, perhaps add importance of SPg measurements to the instructions (not so important with extract brewing). I also noticed a problem with calibration (read 10 deg lower than hand held) of temp gauge maybe because of my using in outside temps in the 20s… otherwise 5 stars.

Does what it says on the Tun!

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.

False bottom issues

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.
