Default Connecting 12" false bottom to kettle

I've got a 40qt kettle I want to add a 12" round false bottom to. What's the best way to connect it to my ball valve? I use the same false bottom in my 10 gallon mash tun with a drilled stopped and some red tubing. I'm just worried that if i use the tubing on the kettle, it may mess up when I'm having to boil for 60 minutes

I'm assuming you're talking about the 12" domed false bottom. Get some Silicone tubing and a hose barb. Connect one end to the FB and the other to the backside of the valve coupler. Silicone is good to 500F

would the red co2 line work? it says it's made to the same NSF-51 tubing which is heat resistant.

Not sure. You'll have to look up the heat specs of that specific tubing. I do know Silicone will work however.
