If the fridge has one of those water hoses running into it for an ice maker or such perhaps you can remove the water line and run you Co2 hose in it's place.

Thanks for the replies. I have the 72qt Coleman Xtreme cooler ( blue one of course ). The toilet supply braid is getting pretty beat up and I just happen to have this bazooka screen and thought it would work great.
You use ss clamps on this? I would assume the threaded connection would hold.
Last question, does it matter what type of SS coupler I get ( i.e. 304 vs 315 stainless ) as long as it's the right size and stainless ( i.e. not galvanized )? The LHBS doesn't carry couplers so I was going to hit Home Depot and pick one up. I could order one online, but I was hoping to get the mash tun back together by this weekend ( and don't want to pay $7 shipping for a $4 part ).
I recommend starting off with a single infusion at 152-153F for at least 60min. Then batch sparge at 168F. Do you have a cooler?
I find it easiest to heat your strike water to the proper temp and then add the grain to the water.
I agree you stir as long as it takes. Also, I use a minimum 1.5/1lb mash that creates a consistent mash bek temp fairly quickly.
Any suggestions for analog reference thermometers. Homebrew shops label the $8 generic glass thermometers (with mecury or whatever) as "lab" grade.
Hope the poppets are in them. They are all different too.Unfortunately, no. However, I just got the catalog from a supplier and they show a picture of what looks like my 2.5 gallon keg. I am going to inquire as to the manufacture and then I can either match my posts or buy some that are correct.
