Default More prop to the Man!

Just wanted to share my very positive experience. I finally after months/decades of annoying msg's purchased a 15" hinged false bottom. Here is a pic of it in my upside down keg (yeungling). It appears to fit perfectly but I'll know for sure following brew day on Saturday. Craftsmanship looks top notch. I received this item on Wednesday, I ordered on Monday. Thats quick. Definately $100 well spent. Cheers.

To reverse hinge or not to reverse hinge - that is the question. Getting ready to pull the trigger on a false bottom (should have done this a while back and used my free shipping code - doh!).

I'm doing a direct fired RIMS and will be recirculating during the mash. I'm wondering about the reverse hinge vs. the standard hinge. I wasn't planning on getting a stand right now as I'll initially just be doing 5 gallon batches. However, if I move to 10 gallon batches in the future, I could see where I might want a stand. Is there any down side to getting the reverse hinge now and not using it with a stand?

Thanks!

Went ahead and ordered the standard hinge. Figured I could always add the heavy duty support later if I find I need it.

Well I have not used the FB with the hinges on top without a stand. But If you get one with a handle a reverse hinge and no stand, you can always use it with the hinges and the handle down until you get a stand then flip it over and have the handle available at that point.


Did that make sence at all?

Cheers
Jay

Who just got their new Jaybird false bottom and will be brewing for the first time on their new brew stand this weekend?

Default Any free shipping events in the works?

Hi Jay,
Finally made it through the entire thread regarding your FB, its superior quality and your excellent customer service. I'm sold!
Do you have any free shipping promotions planned? I can't brew for a month or so have just moved and now reassembling the brewhouse, but thought it would be worth checking.
Cheers!
Keith

Keith
Welcome to the forum!
As for a free shipping deal, not any time soon. Maybe around Nov or Dec. I am slammed with orders and if I added a free shipping promo right now it would put me in the grave! I just did a free shipping deal on False Bottoms a few months back. I only do them a couple times a year.

Cheers
Jay

Jay, is there a threshold, or a guideline, as to how much weight your false bottoms will hold without the need for the additional support stands? I am wanting to convert a keg into my MLT, but am a little unsure as to whether I will need just the standard 15" FB or if I will need one of your additional support filters.

Also, how would the level 3 stand/filter work with a diptube in a boil kettle without the additional 15" false bottom? Would this provide enough filtering action for hops and break material by itself?

Great questions.
I have used my 15" for years without a stand without any issues. I did notice grain getting through a little, while I was doing larger batches 32+# but that is only after years of abuse. From what I have seen anything under 27# your good if your not doing a RIMS or HERMS. Since I started using the level 1 in my MLT I will say this. The added support and the added filtration from the material being there to help stop grain from getting in the diptube is a huge bonus.

As for the level 3 without the FB? I am not sure. I would guess it would clog fairly quickly, but I have not tried it myself and of course it's going to depend on the hop load you throw at it. You can always try it and if you need more filtration add the 15" FB later. You will need a hose clamp or something to hold the Level 3 down during the boil though.

Cheers
Jay
