Stainless Steel False Bottom - 12"
12" Diameter Stainless Steel False Bottom
12" Diameter Stainless Steel Domed False Bottom. Convert a brew pot or cooler into a mash tun. Fits any of our 9, 15, and 19 gallon brew pots. Also fits in 10 gallon Rubbermaid coolers (very tightly). Constructed from 304 stainless steel these false bottoms will not float. Dome height is 1/2". Comes with 3/8" barbed 90° stainless steel elbow hose fitting in the center to draw the wort from beneath the dome.

What size false bottom? A Domed False Bottom seats differently then a straight walled one. The outside dome sits on the bottom and acts as the seal to stop grains and hop material from getting through. As long as your inner diameter is longer then the length of the false bottom (distance across the inside) it will work. False Bottom's are a popular filtering system for keggles, coolers, and pots.

Price: $32.49

5 of 5 Excellent March 9, 2017
Reviewer: Jonathan Jacques from L'Ange-Gardien, QC Canada  
I am using this in my 11.7G Mash King MLT and it is working like a charm. Quickly gives clean Vorlauf and bumped my efficiency.
This is better than the Mash King False Bottom, and its 1/3 of the price. Wow!

5 of 5 Excellent Product September 8, 2014
Reviewer: Jonathan Gibson from Victoria B.C.  
I ordered this along with the assembly adapter kit and after reading the instructions on the kit

"Please note. This part comes with one hose clamp. Use the provided stainless hose clamp on the 3/8" barb of a false bottom. This will provide the seal needed. It will also allow you to remove the false bottom without prying the hose off your barb."

Everything went together with no problem at all and works great!!  Very pleased with this purchase

2 of 5 Problem with adapter kit July 21, 2014
Reviewer: Greg Christie from Toronto , ON Canada  
It's been mentioned before, I just want to re-iterate it.  It comes with a 3/8" barbed elbow, and the optional adapter kit is all 1/2".  If you order the adapter kit like I did, you also need to go into the "Stainless Steel Hardware" section and order a 1/2" close nipple, a Street elbow, and an FPT to Barbed adapter.  Another $12.  Suddenly not so great a deal.  But when It costs over $60 after you order the parts for the workaround, this thing better work flawlessly.  Heck, the screen isn't even a problem.  It looks like It'll work fine.  But I wouldn't know, because I can't hook it up as it was shipped to me, also missing a stainless hose clamp.

Between this an a new mill I got an extra 10% efficiency, so, there's that.
