Subject: cylinder vs. square

I've used up to 12 pounds in my cylindircal cooler.

It was real easy toget the 3/8 to 3/8 right angle compression fitting,
6 feet of copper tubing (coiled and slotted on the bottom)
and the right angle 3/8 spigot (look under your sink, the
oval knob kind you find in plumbing stores) in local hardware stores,
all for under $10.

I think the square cooler setup is a little more complicated,
but I'm basing that on one rig I saw made with plastic tubing
of some sort in a E shape.... Still it's probably no big deal.

My preference for the cylindrical cooler holds since I brew 3 or 5
gallon batches. If you wanna brew bigger ones you'll surely need
the rectangular coolers...
