Default False bottom

So the braided hose on my 10 gallon rubbermaid cooler is falling apart.
Figured it was time to up grade too a false bottom on it.
Stainless steel.

Anyone know who has the cheapest ones for a diy?
Also where can i get a bulkhead so i can install my digital thermometer so i dont have too lift the lid off all the time?

Cheers

Take a rubber stopper, drill a tiny hole in it. Drill hole in cooler. Place stopper in cooler from inside. Shove thermometer into stopper.

There are pictures somewhere but it is as simple as can be.

How would you stir the mash with a thermometer sticking in there?

Why not put it in the lid?
