Mash Tun


Simply put a mash tun is any container in which you mash grains. At its most spartan a mash tun could simply be the same kettle you use to boil wort. At the other end it could be have a computerized thermostat and a built-in heating element to regulate mash temperatures. In between it might be a large cooler modified slightly to allow draining the mash liquor out during sparging.
