Re: tea urn as mash tun?

after reading John Palmer's How to Brew and getting a better idea of what i'm doing ;) I have decided on: a 30ltr cool box using a braided hose manifold. and an ace 30ltr urn for a boiler... the tun should be no more than £30 - £40 to construct and the boiler is almost £80 with delivery. i'm intendi...
