I'm planning on building myself two keggles, one as HLT and the other as mash tun. My doubt is what to use on the mash tun, false botton or bazooka screen. Any advices?

I made a false bottom out of the top that I cut off the keg by cutting slots in it with my angle grinder. Works great and saved me $100. I think there's a thread on here somewhere about it.

That's a good idea. Gota link? I just searched and couldn't find it.

No. But it was pretty easy. Step 1, cut a lot of slots in top. Step 2, jam rubber stopper in keg top hole. Step 3, jam mash tun dip tube into stopper hole. Done. Time for a homebrew.

Rubber Stopper at almost boiling temps?
I don't know about that.
