Pretty sure no false bottom. He said it came with what they originally come with. So no extras there.

I attached pics of the wort chiller he is selling for $50. Is it decent or am I better off buying a new one or a 50' one?

Can you get pics of the mash tun? That might make it a much better deal if it has a nice valve and a braid or manifold installed and he will throw that in with the chiller all for the same price.
Here are a couple pics of the Mash tun. And here is a youtube video he made of him brewing beer. I don't know how old the video is so the equipment may not be in the same condition as in the video. http://youtu.be/J_ZsAIlIEIo

Sign up for the premium membership (support the site) so you both can access the boneyard and post up some 'interesting' pictures. My eyes, MY EYES!!! lol

Wish I would have know it was okay to have the ends curved down outside the kettle before. That's how it was on accident so I try to straighten it and now it doesn't look as pretty. I just hope its functional. Here are pics of what I have completed so far. I did have a leak when I tested it but I was afraid to tighten the clamos too tight and that was my problem. No leaks now
