I am considering getting this false bottom for my 10 gallon Igloo cooler: http://www.midwestsupplies.com/revie.../list/id/3404/
Has anyone used it? Is it really as tight as Midwest says in their description? I would rather not scratch the crap out of my cooler, so should I go with this size or a smaller one? What is the dip tube for on the bottom of this false bottom? I can't seem to picture how it functions...
I have been using a bazooka tube and can only achieve 60% efficiency. I am assuming it's due to channeling, so I'm going to buy or make a false bottom and see if I can get my efficiency up to 70 or 80%. I'll take my bazooka tube and put it in my brew kettle.
Are there any other options for false bottoms? I heard something about creating my own by drilling holes in a piece of plastic?
