Default Mash Tun Filtering Question




This is what I am using for my MT. Will this work without a false bottom? There is a copper pip inside of the ss sleeve with small holes drilled in it.

I can't see why it wouldn't work.

Sorry not sure how to do many things on here yet such as upload a picture correctly. Wasn't sure if I would need a false bottom also. This set up is going to be my first grain brew. Does anyone have any recommendations for cleaning SS. When I got my kegs back from the welder they had stains on the inside and cant seem to get them to go away.

Have you tried Bar Keepers Friend?

Also, a good long soak in hot Oxyclean solution does wonders.

You should be fine. The result should be similar to mashing/sparing with a bazooka screen, which will get you fairly decent efficiency. I've heard from SOME, not all, folks that those are more prone to clogging if you spare too fast due to the weave. So watch out for a stuck sparge.

To clean the welds, get a stainless steel wire brush, attach it to a drill and clean them up. thats what I did and they worked. Don't use anything else besides stainless or else your weld will start to rust.

It will work well for a batch sparge.

With these things... why do people put them in the bottom, below the line where the wort exits? Sure it'll only drain down as far as that? Just wondering as I've got something similar in my cooler I use for a mash tun and trying to figure how to get the best out of it.
