After many years with my blue igloo cube, I decided it was time to freshen up my equipment. This time I went all out, false bottom, stainless ball valve, you name it. I have about $105 wrapped up into it so it was actually a lot more reasonable than I anticipated. Plus buying parts meant to do what you were hoping to do made a big difference, it took me less than an hour to assemble and test for proper seal. The 10gal jug is from Lowes, $49, the 10″ false bottom ($35) and stainless steel ball valve with fittings ($20) were from EJ Wren. I’m writting this from a brew day and while I loved blue, this thing works awesome and was super easy to clean. It’s perfect for 1 man brewing.
