Hey Jaybird,

I'm looking to convert a keg into a mash tun. When looking at your false bottoms I notice you have some with stands and some without. Which do you recommend stand or no stand? Thanks.

Stands would be mash tuns that have a flat bottom, kegs have the concave bottom so no stand necessary.

Stands are mainly used for those with coolers I believe, but flat bottom pots could be used as well

most the kegs converted to mash tuns that I see have false bottoms with stands. (PICO style). I'm just curious if one 'stays put' better than another. I realize with a stand I would have to accommodate for more dead space

I use a converted keg for my mash tun and have the Pico style false bottom, which I haven't grown very fond of yet. I use a pump to recirculate and have had the false bottom collapse on me on several occasions (truth be told I was told that this could happen with the pump that I bought). Plus I don't like the fact that I have to add close to 3 gallons of water to my mash tun before it even touches the grain. Now I'm considering a false bottom like Jaybird's.

It is Dan, both the false bottom (with stands) and the pump. They sell 2 pumps, 1/100 hp & 1/25 hp. They suggested the 1/100 for use with my mash tun but I went with the bigger is better logic and got the 1/25 instead. The club's Pico system has the same false bottom and I haven't run into or heard of the same collapsing problem. Not sure what pumps the club's system has though. Would really like to see Jaybird's recommendation / thoughts about this.

Order #1992. Had to pay for shipping to complete the order, so hopefully you can just refund it. Thanks!
