With AG mashing for whisky as most people use ice coolers then does the plastic used deteriorate over time?
I am thinking that if it does the distillation process would remove any nasties.
Do any stainless steel lined mash tuns exist at a craft level?

Some folks I've seen have used kegs, others have used 50 or 100 litre stainless steel pots.

Google "Brew Sculpture" for some wild hobby level stainless mashing setups!
