Product Details
The patent pending Blichmann 'button louver' false bottom combines the high efficiency of a perforated false bottom with the clog resistance of a slotted false bottom. These heavy duty false bottoms are recommended for the mash tun only - when used in the boil kettle, the solid construction can disrupt the convection currents in the kettle, interfering with the boil and causing a risk of scorching. Blichmann recommends the Hopblocker for use in the boil kettle.

Intended for mashing not boiling
Hi David - John Blichmann here from Blichmann Engineering. This product is intended for mash tun use only and is not intended for use in a boil application. The boiling action tends to lift the false bottom and cause the trouble you are experiencing. Try our HopBlocker for pellet hops or muslin grain bags for whole hops.

Great idea, poor execution
Nice idea, but execution not quite there. Idea is to catch sediment in wort, so it does not clog therminator, hop rocket, or put excess grain into fermenter. The one I got ended up warping badly, so suspended material enters cooling stream, blocking my therminator (twice). Addition of hop bag and hop rocket helped, but why did I spend $110 for a false bottom. I think the problem would be solved by making case bottom of thicker material.

What is it the Size?
A shopper on Jan 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The ID of the 20 gal Boilermaker is 17.5". The false bottom slips in with about 1/16" clearance all the way around.
