cooler

well on brew day i plan on milling once i pick it up they have one there for ya, but no this will be partial mash so main bulk will be extract i just want to peek my head into grains before i take the leap into all-grain (money wise). only issue would be getting the wort out of the cooler.

5 gallon cooler queston

was just thinking about using my non converted 5 gallon rubermaid cooler for a partial mash. can it be done? Thinking of doing a single infusion - batch sparge. Also using a grain bag+strainer to seperate grains.
