Fortunetely, I am using an Igloo cube! But I live in the Ohio River Valley. I have a 35% more chance of getting cancer than the average person using a non-FDA approved cooler. You only live once... Do what makes you happy!

thanks for all the feedback guys. Down here in NC its hard to find some out of this world IPA with alot of bite. The Hops excutioner is about what we can get and of course a good batch of Ranger.
GREEN Flash West Coast IPA. :-)
I think the toxicity is related to the color of the cooler - or at least I read that on the internet....
You can put lipstick on a pig but its still a pig.
The first time I did all grain, I said after it was all done - " that is all there is to it?". It was good beer!
Don't drink while you are brewing. And stick to your plan. I usually wait until the beer is chilling to pour myself a cold one.
#5 - Don't overcarbonate - your kit probably came with 5oz of corn sugar for bottle priming. This is usually a bit much for most beers if you use the whole thing. Use an online calculator and measure out the correct amount for the carbonation level you want. Dissolve it in some boiling water and mix it into the beer in your bottling bucket with a sanitized spoon. If it is not mixed in evenly you will have some flat bottles and some overcarbonated bottles. Here is a good calculator I use: http://www.brewersfriend.com/beer-priming-calculator/
