Title: Mash Tun insulation
Post by: Lager on July 28, 2011, 02:24:32 pm
The last discussion I found on this subject was in 09. Has anyone found a great way to insulate the mash tun. Maybe even something that is fire proof?

What do you use for a mash tun? That will at least give people an idea what your options are.
