A mash tun is a vessel used in the mashing process to convert the starch from the grains to sugar. This is necessary to facilitate the fermentation process. However, homebrewers often do not have a dedicated mash tun, so they use their brew kettles for such a purpose.

Using brew kettles as a mash tun is fairly easy, and it often involves the use of a false bottom, which is a type of screen that separates the wort from the grains or mash. The false bottom has many holes drilled into it to allow the liquid wort to infuse in the solid mash. Homebrewers can also install a spigot to ensure that the process of sparging the wort is also done in the kettle.

The use of a brew kettle as a mash tun always requires the installation of a false bottom. It will serve as the colander that allows the mash bed to float above the water extract without making a lot of mess. To prevent the mash from mixing to the wort, a silicone gasket is necessary to create a secure seal.

The SS Brewtech silicone gasket is made from heat-resistant silicone, which can withstand temperatures as much as 500 degrees Fahrenheit. It can fit on any stainless steel false bottoms and is compatible with a 10-gallon mash tun false bottom.

The SS Brewtech false bottom with silicone gasket is a good accessory for increasing a brew kettle's functionality. With this accessory, a brew kettle will be used to brew the wort and be used as an improvised mash tun.
