Blichmann False Bottom - Compatible with Generation 2 (G2) 20 Gallon BoilerMakers Only
The Blichmann false bottom is created from industry-grade stainless steel. It is designed to be compatible with the Generation 2 (G2) BoilerMaker brew pot so instead of buying a separate mash tun, you can turn this particular brew pot into a multifunctional mash tun.
This particular false bottom features a hybrid perforated louver button design with a slotted manifold to effectively collect the liquid wort. The hole is designed for the BoilerMaker dip tube to pass through and pick up wort from below the false bottom.
When brewing beer, hops are added to the liquid to give the wort its distinct flavour. After the boiling process, home brewers often end up with a liquid mixed with a pile of gunk on the top. It is important to remove the gunk and the sediments as this will affect the fermentation of the beer. The step of removing the gunk from the liquid wort is often done in a mash tun and is called lautering. Aside from separating the liquid from the gunk, the sugar that adhered on the gunk and sediments should be collected.
To effectively separate the wort from the gunk, a device called a false bottom is used. The false bottom acts as a sieve so that the wort can go directly to the bottom of the brew pot and can be collected through a spigot.
