Bobby (brewhardware) has been an inspiration for me from the beginning, so when it was time to move to AG setup and I converted a keg, I bought all my hardware (valves, thermometer, sight-glass and false bottom) from him.
15+ in. false bottoms are expensive and I only know of 2 places to get one right now: Jaybird in No. Cali. and Bobby at brewhardware. His false bottom was a few $$ cheaper with shipping (I believe) and I just had him send the other stuff because his prices were just about as good as anything else I found.
I installed everything without any problems and am very confident that he supplied me with the most suitable options on the market, mainly because I have seen his brewing evolve over the years and the dude absolutely knows what he's talking about. I found a half in. dip tube which you will need for his (he supplies them) and cut to extend into middle of keggle. I think Jaybirds false bottoms have a smaller hole in his false bottoms so a smaller dip tube is required. I like the idea of larger dip tube personally. I'll let you know how it works when my wife actually take the 2 babies for a few hours and I can finally brew again. It's been almost 2 years!
My only complaint would be that the sight glass doesn't come with any 1/2 gal. markers because I'm a freak like that.
wow thats wordy sry, good luck!!
