Default Coolant for 180 TStat swap

Looking for the HOAT Zerex G-05 coolant for my 2010 Hemi, can't seem to find it in any stores. What coolant should I use when swapping my thermostat and has anyone found the G-05 anywhere....I would love to find the 50/50 mix and I know they make it.

If you're going to swap the stat, just drain your radiator into a clean container and reuse what you drain out.

yes and open the rad cap to allow air in so as to drain faster.

usually on the bottom of the radiator, there is a petcock, sometimes metal, but in the newer vehicles it is likely plastic
when turned it allows the liquid to drain in a controlled flow & easy to shut off too
