Stainless False Bottom

Stainless False Bottom - Beer Snob -
$30.00 - $90.00
15 0

Perforated, domed false bottoms custom made for NB from 304 stainless steel. The low dome (the 9" and 10" models are 1/2" high at the top of the dome; the 12" is 3/4") maximizes the capacity of your latuer tun while minimizing foundation space — less foundation space means greater efficiency. A common complaint with plastic false bottoms is that they are too bouyant and can float, which isn't an issue with a stainless false bottom. A brass elbow fitting with a 3/8" barb in the center allows outflow of liquid from beneath the dome; use hi-temp tubing (#7103) to connect to the spigot or drain.

The 9" false bottom fits 5 gallon Rubbermaid coolers, the 10" fits 6 gallon buckets, and the 12" fits 10 gallon Rubbermaid coolers.

    Price: $40.00

    Pros: Everything is pretty much good and good to go.

    Cons: Not any I can think of right now.

    Recommended? Yes

    I purchased my stainless steel false bottom from midwest supplies and it got to me in a very timely manner. 4 days. The product comes very well built and put togeter. The fittings are all stainless steel, the mesh is domed so it will not float. I haven't done an all grain brew batch with it yet but so far it looks promising. I'll finish my review when I use it.

    Price: $38.00

    Pros: Easy to Clean, Works quite well

    Cons: Warped, but seems to work fine, tough to get in/out

    Recommended? Yes

    The false bottom works great, but as I mentioned in the Cons, it came warped and by itself doesn't sit flush on the bottom of the tun, but apparently once the weight of the grains is on top, it seems to flatten out and seal well. Haven't had any problems during any mash at all. Will buy another if I ever get another Igloo cooler to mash in.

    I'm that guy that is always looking for a way to do something cheaper or DIY.
    After trying multiple different approaches, i finally bit the bullet and bought the hinged 15" for my keggle mash tun.

    I will say this - with no reservation - the best purchase i've made in my brewery. first time out, I put this thing through its paces with a 10 Gal Partigyle brew day. It performed FLAWLESSLY. Plenty of foundation space to direct heat a mash tun and do step mash, enough surface area to recirc at fairly high rates without worrying about sucking the grainbed to the bottom.

    LOVE this thing!
