Bobby. Did you get a chance to test this or did you go straight to a false bottom? Just did a hack version motivated by your idea. Mainly wanted to prevent crushing the braid and to hold it in place during stirring. It'll be going in a cooler MLT for batch sparging. Enough holes? Think it'll work?

Yes, it worked very well for me. If I convert to an electric element RIMS heater, I'd go back to using this instead of the false bottom.

Just finish up this project for now, but an electric element RIMS heater might be in the future. The stainless steel liner in this old 10 gallon Igloo kept calling me. I think it's a good candidate for the electric upgrade. I'd be interested to hear your plans.

Wow, that's an old cooler! I've never seen one like that before. Very cool!

I bought all stainless clamps at Elliot's, which is an ACE hardware store. But when I was at the home depot the other day, the clamps they had for sale now were also marked as all stainless on the box, screw, strap, housing etc.
BTW I like that old igloo cooler.

Just wanted to thank Bobby_M for posting this design. I have used one of these for my last four (and first four) all grain batches. Started at 69% and just hit 77% as my process gets more streamlined using his No Mash Out Double Batch Sparge technique (hell, thanks for that info too). I've made a Belgian Wit (50% wheat) and a Porter with a bunch of Flaked Barley without any ill effects or stuck sparges. Simple, easy to clean and durable design. I see no reason to change, as I think my efficiency is mostly limited by the grind coming from my LHBS. Of course, at the rate this hobby is taking over my garage, it's likely that won't be a problem here very soon.

Tag, I'm really glad it worked out for you. Pictures are always appreciated around here if you get the chance.

Hi - So I have a keggle and would love to turn it into a mash tun so I can try out all grain brewing. As the price of false bottoms seem insane to me, this looks like it would be a good option.

I do not have a pump though and was wondering if it would work if it was just being gravity fed. I was also wondering what people thought about doing something like this along with an inverted vegetable steamer (such as the one in the attached picture) in place of a false bottom.

Now that this has been in use for a few years, is there anything that you would do differently with it? Would you mind sending me a parts list and/or any helpful tips? Thanks in advance!

Jesse
