Hi guys, I'm looking into what false bottoms would be best for both my MT and my BK

I've already concluded that I'll get a 15" hinged false bottom for the Mash Tun, but I'm not sure that I need a 15" for my Boil Keggle as well.

Would a 12" False Bottom be enough for the BK?

Any input or alternate suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

people generally dont use a false bottom in the boil kettle. you can use a screen on the pickup tube if you want or if you have problems with hops clogging things.
