This 12" concave type 304 stainless false bottom features a 3/8" stainless hose barb coming out the top for attachment to your cooler or pot valve (via high temperature thermoplastic tubing).
Now improved, with a silicone lip that both prevents cooler scratches and firmly plants the false bottom on the floor of the cooler, preventing shifting. It also includes a ¾" wort pickup tube on its underside, which is positioned ¼" from the cooler bottom when in place, high enough to prevent clogging, but low enough to draw wort from a very low point in the cooler, maximizing efficiency.
This 12" model is custom designed to fit Igloo and Rubbermaid 10 gallon coolers. Order a foot of our J50 3/8" thermoplastic tubing to fit this hose barb. You can attach this hose to the inside of a R45 Brewer's Edge KettleValve with an S37 3/8" stainless nipple.
