Son of MLT… Micro Mash Lauter Tun (μMLT) v1.0

This is a 2 gallon Rubbermaid beverage cooler conversion I did yesterday for 1 gallon batches/exbeeriments. I added a 3/8 ball valve.

Beer bottle for scale because I didn't have a banana.

There is a CPVC manifold inside.

The CPVC manifold is coupled to the bulkhead with a 3/8 threaded to 1/2 inch pipe copper fitting.

With the manifold pulled out, you can see the slits that were cut into the CPVC with a hacksaw for lautering.

And here is the micro mash/lauter tun (μMLT?) on top of its big brother, a 10 gallon Igloo MLT.
