Mash Tun

thorr:
My mash tun cooler drain is a little bit off the bottom , do I need to allow for this or just tip up the cooler when draining ?

tygo:
Tip it up a little.  I prop the far end of mine up while I'm running off.  There will still be some deadspace but with a little trial and error you'll figure out what that volume is that's left behind and can account for it in your volume calculations.

I use a phone book, or other similar sized object, when doing my second runnings.

denny:
I wait until the runoff stops, then tilt mine.

Batch sparge with a rectangular cooler? Tilt away.
 
Fly sparge? Just add some more sparge water.
 
Batch sparge in a round cooler/false bottom that pulls wort from the center? Tilting won't make a difference.
