Hey everyone - I was just given a Krome Dispense (unused/unopened) false bottom for my cooler mash tun and I've noticed two things. The inside of the 90 degree nipple fitting facing the bottom of the mash tun has spots of red rust, and the top looks like it is cast metal that is coated, and the coating is rubbing off. I tested this for dead space and the water I measured had flecks in it.
I don't know a lot about metals and fittings but this is advertised as stainless - should I use this?
Thanks in advance.
