Our high efficiency false bottoms for our 15 Gallon kettles are made out of laser cut 14gauge 304 Stainless steel. They feature a stainless steel handle for inserting and removing from the kettle. They also have a seperate stainless steel supporting ring that is easily removable for cleaning. Our new laser slotted false bottoms are much more efficient than perforated stainless and are so much easier to clean. They are identical to the false bottoms used in commercial brewing systems. All of our complete brewing systems comes standard with a false bottom in the mash tun. An additional false bottom can be used for a second mash tun or in the boil kettle for straining out hops & adjuncts.
