Stainless False Bottom
- Polar Ware Stainless False Bottom
Hey, I am thinking about investing in a SS false bottom from Polar Ware for their 10gal pot. Does anyone have experience with these Polar Ware bottoms and can recommend it or not? Thanks!
- Cheap source for stainless material to make false bottom
Anyone know of a cheap place to get some perforated stainless? I want to make a false bottom for my boil kettle and don't want to spend a ton. Thanks

Pros: Everything is pretty much good and good to go.
Cons: Not any I can think of right now.
Recommended? YesI 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.
Pros: Easy to clean, works great
Cons: Warped, tough to get in/out
Recommended? YesAlready did this?
Pros: Easy to Clean, Works quite well
Cons: Warped, but seems to work fine, tough to get in/out
Recommended? YesThe 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!
