PICO style Stainless Steel keg kettle mash tun false bottom (keg kettle NOT included). The 16% open design lends itself to better efficiency and a clearer sparge.
The 2 halves fit snugly into the keg preventing grain leakage while resting on 2.25" tall supports above the port. This allows you to mash in a keg kettle without scorching grains. Diameter is 15-3/8" which matches the inside diameter of the 1/2 barrels.
This is the most efficient false bottom we have ever seen or used. If you can find a better false bottom, Matt will eat his hat (and he really loves his hat).
These PICO False Bottoms should not be used with a pump discharge barb of over 3/8". Using large 1/2" barbs will create too much suction on the false bottom and can cause the stands to bend. We only recommend 3/8" tubing and barbs down stream of your PICO Mash Tun.
For proper installation, place the false bottom on top of the supports with the bent pieces facing up
