    Yes. I didn't bother with cuttingOne nice thing about the bazooka aka kettle screen and the SS
    braid is that I just lightly screw them into the nipple hand tight (no tape or wrench). Just
    unscrew when...

    I have a 10 gallon rubbermaid cooler fitted with a SS bulkhead fitting and ball valve. I have
    tried it fly sparging with a SS perforated false bottom, SS braid and Bazooka Screen. The false

    One problem I came across when trying to heat my 10 gallon pot on the electric stove. The pot
    is so big that it trapped the heat under the pot and actually warped the top of the stove from
