I'm surprised at the suggestion of a 70 qt. Coleman extreme.  It's no bigger, maybe not as big, as the cooler I'm using now.  Isn't a larger cooler available?  Thanks,

70qt is 17.5 gallons. You could go with the 100 or 120 quarts.

I've got a 152 qt. that I use to make 10-15 gal. of big beers.  I call it the "mash coffin" because it's big enough to be buried in!

Oops, thanks all.  I miss-calculated.  70 qt is huge, and will do me just fine.  I'll probably buy a blue Coleman Extreme when I get the time for a little project.  Thanks a ton!  See you all in Grand Rapids.
