How does this sound. Rather then a metal plate with xxxx number of holes...a metal frame with a fine metal mesh? The false bottom is just acting as a strainer I assume from looking at pol's pics. How does that sound?

My setup is the cheapest and easiest way to go.

Buy two 5 gallon food grade buckets. drill about 100 1/8" holes in the bottom of one to use as your
false bottom. Then just stick the bucket with holes in the bottom in another that has a spigot installed
and buy a 18" x 24" Nylon filter bag for use in the false bottom bucket for sparging.

This setup only cose me about $40 for my lautering tun.
