First time using a false bottom (morebeer's 8g kettle)
I did an extract batch this weekend and didn't think I needed the false bottom. I mean what is it going to catch really? When I bought it I planned on just using it when I do the all-grain mashing.
I was being lazy and just left it in the kettle when I did my full extract boil.
When I emptied all the wort into the fermenter and got every last drop out, I looked into the kettle.
It had trapped all the hop pellet sludge and other stuff on the false bottom.
Sorry, it's my newest addition to my equipment and I find it ROCKS!!!
