It doesn't really matter which way the hinge goes... if you find the FB to be opening the wrong way... just turn it over... won't matter if the hinge is on the top or bottom of the false bottom...

This is very true unless there is a handle in the mix...

Cheers

oh yeah. I forget about the handles because I opted not to get one on mine. I used stainless wire instead and have 2 handles this way

But you could still turn it over... your handle just would be useless at that point

Hey All-

Just wanted to give my own personal review of Jaybirds actual business; NorCal Brewing Solutions.

I have NOT received my false bottom yet (it shipped today) but will report in on that when I get it.

EDIT: I got the FB and filter in the mail promptly, it was packed well. Great quality, the welds look pretty decent, and I gotta say that these are probably the sturdiest FB's around. Everything lines up perfectly in the keg, and I gotta say that I like the handle on top because it helps me disconnect the dip tube easily.

If you look at a few earlier posts, you can see that I mistakenly ordered standard hinges on the FB for use with the level 1 filter stand. Realizing that the hinges might interfere, I contacted Jay today as well as the guys who handle the orders and let them know that I'd like to change my order to a FB with reverse hinges.

I knew that it may have already shipped, and if so I could live with my mistake, no big deal.

Here comes the good part: Jay's guys Victor and Dom ALREADY caught my mistake and corrected it BEFORE I even asked. How's that for quality control? Plus, they let me know it was shipping today and hooked me up with a tracking number. I know not every company can provide that level of service all the time, but I think it's awesome and thought they should be recognized for it.

Now, I can't wait to get my stuff

Well thank you sir! I take great pride in building them for you guys. Feel free to ship samples of the wonderful beer you are making to me. You will have to address it C/O Jaybird or else the other guys in the store will get em' and drink em'

Thanks for the props!
Cheers
Jay

Default another repeat customer

Had a great talk with Jay this morning, about their false bottom stand (something that became available after I got my false bottom from him). Got one coming in the mail, and should have it before my brew-day next weekend (12/15/12).

As always, good talking with Jay, getting great info at the same time. Personally, I wouldn't get a false bottom from anywhere else (as long as he's around/making them).

I'm going to have to see what I can also send off to him for 'sampling' Maybe a bottle of my 12.5% wee heavy when it's carbonated.

Oh yeah... Also got an 8.9% old ale carbonating. Both are on CO2 in the basement right now. Started them carbonating earlier this week. Also need to bottle up my maple mead/wine. If that comes out well, I'll include a bottle of that (only 14%)...

Default Are you still making false bottoms?

I recently purchased a 10 gallon round cooler from Home Depot to make a mash tun. I found your thread on here from 2009 and am curious if you are still making them? Inside measurement is roughly 12x12.

If you want the best false bottom money can buy PM me. I will post up pricing later on tonight when I get to the store.
Again I am sorry about the thread Tx is looking into where it went.
