Mash Tun insulation
« on: July 28, 2011, 01:24:32 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.
