Default Brute mash tun

Recently i realized my 10 gallon rubbermaid cooler mash tun is not big enough to brew super sized all grain batches.

I got to thinking i has seen a huge brute garbage can mash tun. Looking at the 20 gallon can it looks plenty big for me too use. I was thinking about getting a ball value from from bargain fittings.

My question is in looking at it, it has a deep rim in the bottom i assume for collection garbage juices. I wanted a false bottom but that doesn't look very viable. Any one have any suggestions for this? I was thinking a brained stainless hose all the way around or the flexible copper tubing in the base.

Anyone done this and have a parts list so i dont make 20 trips to the hardware store.
