Product Details
Perforated, domed false bottom - fits 5 gallon coolers. The 1/2" dome height maximizes the capacity of your lauter tun while minimizing foundation space — less foundation space means greater efficiency. A stainless steel elbow fitting with a 3/8" barb in the center allows outflow of liquid from beneath the dome; use hi-temp tubing (#7103) to connect to the spigot or drain. All of the components used in this false bottom are stainless, except for two silicone o-rings that keep the elbow from loosening itself - no more suction from an inadequate elbow height!

Great Product! Well worth the price.
I have been using this false bottom for over a year now and have to say it's great. Definitely a must have piece of equipment for all-grain brewers mashing in a 5 gallon cooler. It's sturdy, durable, and easy to clean. Plus, my efficiency has gone way up since I started using it.

Meets all expectations
I have the false bottom for both 5 and 10 gallon coolers. They fit perfectly in my 10 and 5 gallon round coolers respectively. Dead space (foundation space) created when using this false bottom is about 1 and 3 quarts respectively, but that is more of a function of the height of the spigot on the cooler than the design of the false bottom. My only complaint is that I have to disassemble the whole spigot assembly to remove this false bottom for cleaning from the 10 gallon, it slips out of the 5, but that's a very minor complaint.

Works well
Works well in my 5 gallon cooler. No complaints other than the wasted wort due to the foundation space. That's a symptom of the cooler spigot location and not the false bottom. All in all it does the job for my setup.

Worked good with a slight modification
It works pretty good, but could be better. My complaints with the false-bottom is that they only give you one nut and the barb height could be a little more adjustable to the higher side. In my set up, the barb height was too low and because of this the false bottom barb could come off or end up on an angle when mashing. To fix this, I used a Delta faucet washer on the top side to prevent it from slipping off on an angle. I used their nut to adjust it to as high as I could get it. As for a stiff tubing, that would have not worked for my 5 gallon Igloo that didn't have the room and would have made my problems worse.
