You guys are correct ! the valve is a good 2 inches above the bottom of the cooler, and my old 5 gal tun the valve is less than an inch from the bottom. Talked to a manager and he let me exchange the square 12gal cooler for a 10 gal round cooler. I measured the 10 gal cooler at the store and the hole sits less than an inch from the bottom.

Went home and installed bulkhead, valve, and my old manifold. I'm brewing Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgearld clone this Sunday.

Thanks for the help

Sorry to the late reply to all your questions. The new tun is square 13"x13", my old 5 gal octagon manifold is only 8" in diameter made of cpvc. I bought some copper today and going to build a square manifold for the new tun. The old manifold was a great design and was very efficient.

I have been brewing for over a year now and have decided to upgrade my all grain system. I went from having a 5 gallon cooler mash tun to now a 48qt 12 gal mash tun. I have made two batches on this mash tun and keep running into the same problem. When doing a 5gal batch in this 12 gal tun I leave 1-2 gal of wort in the tun. Is this tun too big for a 5 gal batch? Also I did not make a new manifold for this one yet. I just used the octagon manifold from my old round 5gal tun which only occupies half of the bottom of the tun. Would making a square manifold the occupies the entire bottom solve this?
