I totally am using this for making beer and its awesome.
I use this cooler for a mashtun when brewing beer. In my first mash it held temps much better than expected. The spigot is easy to remove for installing a ball valve as well which is nice. I'm sure it would work great as a regular cooler too.
My other one finall met it match so i had buy anither onem this Unit is perfect
This cooler was $10.00 cheaper than anywhere else. Makes a great Mash tun for the home brewer. Holds temp, lost only 1 degree in one hour.
I just bought this Igloo 10 Gallon Igloo Orange and White Beverage Jug. I plan to use it for my beer brewing hobby as a mash tun. Right now I am installing a Stainless Steel Spigot to the cooler along with a Stainless Steel False Bottom. Here is the important point I would like to make: When you remove the original plastic spigot, you will notice the wall thickness right at the spout area is 1/8th inches thick on this cooler. (The wall tapers down to 1/8th inch at the spigot area). This means the new metal nipple has to be a 1/2 inch CLOSE nipple. (CLOSE nipple means the threads nearly meet in the middle or are threaded across the entire nipple). A non CLOSE nipple will maybe have a non threaded 1/4" to 3/8th" area in the center of the nipple. If you can't crank the nuts and fittings on each side of the nipple down to around 1/8th inch, you won't be able to secure your new spigot to the cooler and have a water tight connection. Different brand coolers have different wall thicknesses bye the spigot. This one is around 1/8th inch. So I hope this helps other home brewers out so you can buy the proper nipple for your cooler. I bought all my SS fittings as a kit from: www.bargainfittings.com A kit for a metal vessel will fit this cooler better then their water cooler kit as the nipple provided is not a CLOSE one for their water cooler kit. Most likely an ice chest conversion would require a nipple larger then a CLOSE one. This cooler will make a great Mash Tun. At 10 gallon capacity, it easily will be able to handle any 5 gallon batch and some not wee heavy 10 gallon batches. It's a really great product! One last thing, the cup holder you get with the cooler is rmovable as you won't need or use it with the cooler used as a mash tun.
Great cooler for mixing 10 gallons of martinis to drink at the little league game!
This purchase was a good choice. I bought this for a family reunion in the outdoors in Colorado. We used it for Country Time Lemonade, and Kool-aid. It held ice for about 24 hours which worked fine but a little disappointed with it because Colorado summers are not hot at all. Overall it was a great purchase and woul recomend this product.
Like many people, I ordered these to convert to a hot water tank and mash tun for brewing. I received exactly what I ordered and it arrived within two or three business days. This was by far the best price anywhere for the igloo cooler. I've heard it holds temps better than the Rubbermaid version--but I have no factual evidence.
It's a water jug so yeah, it holds water well. lol I cant talk about how cold it keeps the water or for how long. I bought this for our cubscout pack and we used it over a three day camping trip. Worked well. It's a 10 gallon, so filled it weighs about 80+ lbs. The handles seem to be able to hold up. The spout seems like a good quality. It comes with the black cup dispenser shown in the picture. The lid also has a rope tied to it to keep you from loosing it, I guess. The price was good, and it shipped/ arrived fast. There was another 10 gallon I looked at, the Rubbermade one. But reviews were not good. If we have issues down the road, I'll try to come back and report it here.
We used this for our family camping trip. 14 kids with paper cups.....no sodas, it was GREAT!
The price on this cooler was better than I'd found anywhere, including on-line locations. I didn't like the idea of being forced to go to the store to pick this up, but the price was so good, I decided to do it anyway. The delivery to the store was faster than I had been informed to expect (WAY FASTER). The associates were nice and the retrieval of the item was speedy once I got to the store. I ordered this a week prior to Thanksgiving and it arrived at the store the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. The store was a mad-house with last-minute holiday stuff going on. The customer service area was under control and running smoothly. I'd do it again...
I bought 2 of these Igloo Beverage Coolers because of the price. They arrived in great shape. I purchased them using Walmart.com Ship to Home. They will make a good mash tun for brewing beer the all grain way.
These are really great coolers. Naturally, they are VERY heavy when full of liquid. I purchased three and had to return one due to the fact that the spigot was cracked. That may have happened in shipping - don't know. I can foresee getting alot of use out of these.
Best deal I could find for a 10 gal. water jug. Make sure you get the seat top so that you can stack things on top of it when in storage.
QUALITY PRODUCT. PRICE WAS A GREAT DEAL.
Perfect size for summer sports. 5 gallon jugs are not enough.
Works great! Filled it half full of ice and the rest with water. I buckled it up in my car like a passenger and headed for a picnic. In 96 degree heat for 5 hours, still had lots of ice and lots of nice cool water. Push button spout worked perfectly every time and did not leak. Excellent product at an amazing price!
Would have given this 5 stars if Walmart had sold the cups along side of it. At least don't make the consumer figure out what size cups fit in the holder!
What can be said, it's an Igloo, made in Texas, used 'em for years, great stuff. Buy one or two, ken
great for picnics
