    Almost wat jigsaw said but slightly tweaked. If you search deep enough you will find this advice from one of the other members on one of the urn threads. BIAB in the urn BUT don't add all the water keep 10+l for sparging after the bag is lifted.

    So if like me you bought the logic urn you have 40l actual volume.
    5-5,5kg grain in 25 -30l water should JUST fit.
    Then once your higher OG mash is done sparge to extract more sugar but also dilute to planned pre boil gravity. Could get really close to 40l.

    As a final note someone on here shared a pick of a porter boiling that was absolutely filled to the brim so you really dont need 5l deadspace above the boil

    You could .. of course step one back .. and modify your 50litre coolerbox into a mash tun.

    +1 to what Jannie said.

    I have a CaterPride 50L urn I improved my mash efficiency on my last brew. I sparged (rest my bag in a large colander over the urn) with 5L to get more "juice" out of the grains.

    Absolutely, I'm keen to upsize and very much doubt it'll be to brewtools whilst I'm still here

    The plus with that is its a doddle to remove from the vessel for cleaning purposes. If you decide later that you want a change you can just put a blanking plate on to cover the fitting and move the element to another vessel.

    I quite like this idea. Keeps everything modular like my system is already.

    Do you perhaps know where one could buy a stainless steel vessel or have it made?
