    So an opportunity might be presenting itself where I could swap out my current hot liquor tank which is an 8 gallon uninsulated insulated stainless steel pot with 10 gallon Igloo cooler setup.

    Other than making the rig about three feet taller and bumping into the overhead garage door, what else should I be taking into consideration, pro and con, if I do this?

    Thoughts?

    Aside from lower heat loss and the need to replace the cooler's spout with a ball valve and some kind of pickup in the tank, I can't see any negatives.
