I converted a 10 gallon rubbermaid cooler into a mashtun. I am using an SS braid with a manifold. I would like to switch over to a false bottom. Has anyone done this? Do the 12" domed false bottoms actually fit properly or does it laeve a gap? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks guys-

I use a SS false bottom in my cooler as you can see in my Avatar. I bought the one from Northern Brewer that fits the 10gal cooler. Works awesome!!

I use the false bottom from Northern Brewer as well. Mine can a little warped and didn't sit flat on the bottom of the cooler when it arrived. Easy enough to fix.
