Titan Universal False Bottom - 11.5" Diameter
Brew bigger. The Titan has been designed and rigorously tested against the most intense grain bills and kettle hop additions our brewmasters could throw at it. Whether you're crafting a 12% imperial stout or a triple IPA with 20 oz. of hops, the Titan is tough enough to take it.
Gleaming, superior stainless construction looks beautiful and lasts a lifetime. Smooth edges won't scratch your precious mash tun, keeping it pristine for countless brews to come. A flanged bottom keeps particulates separated for improved clarity. Best of all, with less than ¼" of dead space you'll get every last drop of wort.
Required but not included: a 3/8" barb for the inside of your kettle or cooler and a short length of high-temp tubing to connect the barb to the elbow on the false bottom. Worm clamps can also help secure this connection.
If using one of our new IsoFlow Bulkheads or EZ Clean Flush Mount bulkheads, choose the IsoFlow's Snap In hose barb to connect your false bottom.
A false bottom acts as a strainer, preventing grain particles from draining into the boil kettle with wort. An essential piece of all-grain equipment, we've built the Titan to be stronger and more effective than any other false bottom.
Our brewmasters have thrown every worst-case brewing situation at the Titan. It has never clogged and never collapsed. The two-piece proprietary Titan pickup tube supports the dome to withstand whatever pressure your biggest brew day can muster.
The Titan pickup tube gets closer to the floor of your mash tun than any other false bottom. You'll be able to transfer more of your wort into the boil kettle, leaving less than ¼" behind in what is called the "dead space".
With its chrome-like sheen and smooth edges, it's a beautiful piece of all-grain equipment that keeps the rest of your equipment beautiful, too. No scratched brewing vessels or clogged ball valves. Just a smooth flow, clear wort and an effective, stress-free brew day.
Required but not included: a 3/8 barb for the inside of your kettle or cooler and a short length of high-temp tubing to connect the barb to the elbow on the false bottom. Worm clamps can also help secure this connection.

Haven’t had a chance to use it yet but I liked it over other brands because of the solid ring around the outside is less likely to scratch the bottom of my Rubbermaid mash tun.
Works like a champ. Working great here in Hawaii where everything rusts. Rust tends to happen, especially if it's kept outside. Does not matter if it's stainless. Items have to be really high quality stainless. This false bottom works!!!
Fit perfectly in the cooler!
My first false bottom was of similar design, but I learned it wasn't very sturdy. What I thought was a stuck sparge was actually a collapsed false bottom. As soon as I pulled this one out of the box I was confident that won't happen again. It's very well made, heavy duty. Great quality product, worth every penny.
I bought this to use in my return to all grain brewing. I'm using it in a rubbermaid 10 gallon cooler mash tun. Fits well, I estimate that it take about 1/2 gallon of foundation water to cover the false bottom. I really liked the design as I wasn't in to building a DIY false bottom. Recently used it with my first 10-gallon batch (about 18lbs of barley and wheat malt for a wit and lembic). Started to run the vorlauf and bang stuck mash. :-( Fortunately I was able to blow some compressed air back through the false bottom drain. This cleared the stuck mash very well and after that, it worked like a charm. I will need to run a few more batches through this to see if this is a systematic issue or just an issue with my particular recipie - as I took no particular method to avoid a stuck mash. For now, I'm quite happy with the bottom, but time will tell on this.
