The 12" Stainless Steel Domed False Bottom provides an effective mash tun filter

On the Angel Homebrew false bottom the default fittings in the centre of the false bottom shown below on left are upgraded with the fittings shown below on the right, giving the following benefits.

  • The larger bore provides potential for higher flow rate
  • The height of the nipple from the bottom of the pot can be adjusted to control and minimise the liquid left in the pot (known as 'dead space')

Upgraded false bottom centre fittings

The false bottom below is adjusted to have only 300ml dead space and drains enough that the liquid no longer touches the sides of the pot and sits only on the base.
