Recommended Mash Tun

Looking for a mash tun to get started on your all-grain adventure? Look no further than the Short Finger Custom 48 Quart Manifold Cooler Mash Tun.

We here at Canada Homebrew Network lean towards the batch sparge method for it’s ease and simplicity. But you can’t go wrong either way.

Short Finger Brewing Co. provides custom cooler mash tuns. Complete with copper manifold and 1/2” sanitary shut off valve. Rectangular cooler with a 48 quart capacity makes it ideal for 5 to Gallon brews. Try something different from the standard igloo cylinder mash tun. Rectangular mash tuns allow you to keep a shallow bed of grain for improved efficiency while brewing. Copper manifold sits in the bottom of your mash bed and is easily removed for cleaning. 1/2” Sanitary valve is threaded so you can attach a barb to connect siphon hose. We recommend using high temp silicon tubing with mash tun.
