PICO Keg/Keggle False Bottom Assembly

PICO Keg False Bottom has our unique 16% open design.  Our PICO Keg/Keggle False Bottom 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.

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 Mash Tun.

For proper installation, place the false bottom on top of the supports with the bent pieces facing up.

Love It!
I had problems with a hinged false bottom laying flat on the bottom of my keg. Since the keg had some dings in it, it didn't create a flush seal. I tried the Pico false bottom and I get a super tight seal around the walls instead of the bottom. I still managed to cram about 30lbs of grain in the mash tun with a little room to spare. Love it!

Great Mash
So I have used these around 2-3 times so far within my Keg and could not be more pleased. Have no issues whatsoever with grains getting by and into my lines which I push through pumps. Well worth it for the money.

Drastically improved our brew day
Yesterday was the first time my brew partner and I used the false bottom. We did two very big beers (1.12 OG stout and a barleywine around 1.08) and partigyled the stout. We previously used a cooler tun with copper tubes slit to allow drainage. We did ok with that and it was a good tool but we got stuck sparges in that thing quite a bit and never seemed to hit our OG on any of our brews. ALL THREE of our beers came out with EXACT OG numbers that we calculated. Absolutely zero problems draining our new tun with this. We lifted up the plates after removing all of the grains and there were practically NO grains below. You could visibly see where the ring of grains stopped at the height of the plates. Absolutely recommend this thing. Another thing I absolutely recommend is to be careful when cleaning out the tun if you're doing it by hand. I was using my hand to scrape together the remaining pieces at the end and some of the slits acted like a food processor... sliced the hell out of two of my fingers! Even cleaning the plates I wasn't paying attention close enough and was gently wiping my hands over the plates and still got small cuts. Overall, I give this thing a raving 5 star review. Couldn't recommend it highly enough if you do big beers or big batches.

Excellent false bottom
Over fifty 10 gallon batches and never a stuck sparge. Very nice high quality product. Bought two of these a few years back and no regrets.

Exact Fit
An exact fit, just what I was looking for. Cleared my weldless fittings fine. You have a good product there.

Worked Perfectly
Wanted to let you know that I used the stainless steel false bottom and it worked perfectly. Very nice setup you have there! My efficiency was close to 75 to 80% which is pretty good for me and is consistent with previous batches. I am very happy with the product and I hope you sell a bunch of them. See you in a month or two when I need to do some restocking of my brew supplies. I''ll have to bring in a sample of my IPA that I made with the maiden voyage next time I''m in. Thanks again!
