I have a 10 gal mash tun i bought online, never made my own.
Well it cracked today - time to replace.
Ive made 2.5 gal batches with it for the last few years and no longer need 10 gal
So i bought a 5 gal rubbermaid cooler which will do the job.
I went to the only hardware store in town to get the parts and dayum!!!
They have NOTHING stainless steel as im told to use, everything is copper.
They have all I need, the ball valve, joints, etc, but everythings copper.
question is will copper do the job?
I bought the hot water hook up already for the braid, cut it up and removed the center already
its the only stainless steel item they had, but as i said - i didnt buy the rest yet.
I dont want to have to buy it all online.
please say copper works haha
i know it should work, copper is clean and whatnot, but im more worried
about the introduction of copper tastes.
