Which is the size for the 10 gal. Igloo? If I have my own weldless bulkhead, what else wouldI need? A diptube? Thanks in advance!

Well I have been selling a 16.99 stand that works with the 15" false bottom and does not raise the false bottom any. It sits under the false bottom in the center. I don't have it on the site yet as we started making these for the guys doing massive grain bills and using a RIMS system where your pulling real hard on the grain bed. I am having Victor add this to the site in the next day or 2
Most people (about 98%) dont require a stand and have killer luck. I also like the Hop Blocker Mini @ (1.5" tall) as a stand because it adds yet 1 more way to block grain from getting in the dip tube. I use a mini in my system as a stand myself and love it, but I do huge 12 gallon batches and push my system to the max!

This is the Mini

The club's Pico system has the same false bottom and I haven't run into or heard of the same collapsing problem. Not sure what pumps the club's system has though. Would really like to see Jaybird's recommendation / thoughts about this.
Well of you know I am going to recommend the Jaybird 15" over any others out there... If your worried about it collapsing get a stand for the keggle and 15" or buy a mini, cant go wrong there.

All 10 gallon coolers measure different. What you need to do is when you order the 10 gallon cooler kit is measure the bottom of your cooler 2" above the bottom and get me that measurement, I will custom cut the false bottom to fit your cooler. No you really don't need a diptube, the false bottom will sit above the drain.
Cheers
Jay

Thanks Jaybird. Another question, by you stating that u need the measurement 2 inches from the bottom, am i to assume that i need the bottom with the stand when i order? Also you need the diameter from inside edge ti inside edge, right? Finally, when i get thst number, do i order the next size up from my measurement and the put the customized info in a comment box? Thanks.

Thanks for the feedback Jaybird! So, if I go with the 15" false bottom and a mini, how much water am I looking at below the false bottom until I hit the grain? My biggest complaint with the Pico false bottom is the 3 gallons I need to account for before touching the grain. Thanks again!
