DIY Cooler Mash Tun

I bought a 48 quart cooler for 10 dollars to make a mash tun. I want to do a modified brew in a bag followed by a batch sparge in the cooler to milk a bit more sugar out. I have been getting efficiency in the low 60s and below. It seems wasteful, and I don’t like the spinning and squeezing. I just want drop the hot bag o grains in the cooler and drain off more sweet wort, maybe pour a gallon or 2 hot water in the cooler or maybe not, either way, I think I’ll be more satisfied with less fuss and mess. It’ll just take a bit of set up. Yes, this marks my decline into gear…
