I have recently moved from 10 to 25 gal, and am thinking of using my old SS false bottom from my tun for my new big kettle to strain out whole hops. Has anyone tryed this, and any thoughts on using copper to run it to my ball valve

Thanks in advance

If you can make it fit there shouldnt be any problems.

Some people worry about copper - I don't, especially if it is only running to the valve. Think of HERMS systems where wort runs through tons of copper over and over again - or when you put a copper chiller in your wort or run wort through a CFC. Beer used to be boiled in copper boilers at commercial breweries. (the old Sierra Nevada brewery had an old copper system from Germany before they upgraded - hey make pretty good beer).
