Our 12" Stainless Steel Domed False Bottom is used in 10 Gallon Igloo Cooler.  The hole in the center measures 7/8".

The 16% open design contributes to better efficiency and a clearer sparge.

Add-on our false bottom assembly which includes all fittings from the false bottom through to the one piece stainless steel ball valve.  

Our compression fitting design incorporates a stainless steel tube which essentially "Hard Plumbs" the false bottom into place. The false bottom will NOT float.

The fittings are a mixture of brass and stainless steel.  Currently (June 2013), the tube, nut and ball valve are stainless steel and the elbow, hose barb, bulkhead and compression fittings are brass.  We've looked at the possibility of making everything stainless steel on this and determined it is simply not cost efficient.  HOWEVER, if you are interested in all stainless steel, we recommend going with a pot over the cooler as a mash tun.  Here is one example.
If you are mashing in a cooler, this is the premier false bottom for you

Add-on the cooler & False Bottom assembly and we will assemble your cooler for free!

Rating Awesome
Better than I expected. I did put it in differently. I used the plastic washer that was molded to fit the original gasket and the gasket from the original spigot on the inside for the valve/bulkhead assembly. The included O-ring I used with the stainless washer with the O-ring groove in it to snub down the false bottom. Leak free first time. - Reviewed by on 1/4/2014

Rating Slick Setup
I have had a chance to brew two all-grain batches using the false bottom set-up. It is a very slick setup and I am happy that it is part of my brewery. - Reviewed by on 2/19/2012

Q: Is there SS screening under the slits as in most domed FB assemblys? I can't tell from the picture.
Asked by: - 6/30/2014
A: There is not any additional screening underneath this false bottom. The design of this false bottom makes additional screening unnecessary.

Q: I'm currently using a braided hose in my 10 gallon Igloo mash tun and I'm interested in switching to your false bottom. I already have a bulk head installed in my mash tun and was wondering what parts I'd need to connect a 1/2" pick up tube to your false bottom?
Asked by: - 12/27/2013
A: You could try a 1/2"MPT x 1/2" compression elbow (item 49-a69ff) along with a lock nut (item 73-1744) IF your bulkhead can connect a piece of 1/2" tubing, similar to our Mashing Made simple assembly (item 99-2992)
