Lid for a mash tun
« on: May 22, 2011, 05:45:28 PM »
My brother just "found" a 10 gallon gott cooler with no top. Any suggestions for a top or should I just use it for a sparge bucket and stay with my 5 gallon gott system?

I would think you could make one out of wood.  Two layers glued together, bottom layer fits inside and the top layer sits on the rim.  Orient the grains of each layer at 90 deg to help keep it from warping and coat it with some urethane.  Just a thought.......
