I'm looking to make one of the mash tuns out of a plastic bucket. I find instructions like "drill a bazillion holes into the bottom with a small drill bit". How small? Is there a size that's too small and likely to get clogged?


I believe Papazian indicated 1/8th inch holes.

  • Yeah, I did mine with 1/8 inch and worked beautifully. I think I went through a six pack of brew while I was drilling though, it took forever. – dzachareas Aug 3 '10 at 21:44
