For years, people have asked me about the braid I use in my cooler mash tun. It seems like there are a lot of braids that don't work well, as evidenced by some of the kludges I've seen like putting a coil of wire in the braid. I've always said that it shouldn't be necessary if you get the right braid, but I built mine so long ago that I couldn't recall what I used. Well, I've been building mash tuns lately to document the procedure for the book and I have the answer! What has been working perfectly for me is the Lasco brand Pro-Flex Stainless Braided faucet connector hose. Part no. 10-0121 or 10-0321. The only difference is the size of the compression fitting on it, and you cut that off anyway.
I just wanted to document this here so that in the future I can remember what the heck it is!
