Thanks all. I will be fly sparging and more importantly, using a heating tank and recirculating my wort, so I need to keep as much grain as possible out of the wort that I will be pumping. My plan is to use the false bottom on top of a copper manifold.
I'll draw it up and post it when i get a chance.
EuBrew, I was planning on having a machine shop drill the holes, but your solution is even better, thanks!
Not all chemicals are bad. Without chemicals such as hydrogen and oxygen, for example, there would be no way to make water, a vital ingredient in beer.
