Description
 
This is the first false bottom specifically designed for Brew In A Bag process. When you use a mesh bag in a pot, whether it's directly fired on a burner or heated electrically, you want to keep the bag off the bottom. Typical homebrew false bottoms have really small holes and cut off the free flow that mesh bags are know for. Another less desirable choice is a steamer rack or tray that is found in kitchen shops, but none of those are stainless steel.

We've redesigned the support structure by using 1/8" thick, 1/2" wide 304SS flat bar that is rolled into a ring and further supported by an X-shaped cross brace. The legs are made of M8 metric bolts and are threaded into five nuts that are welded to the underside of the support structure. This modular leg style allows for just about any height you need just by changing out the length of the bolts.

OPTIONS: You have the choice of several lengths during purchase, electable in the drop down menu. Note that if you select "no legs", the screen still has the welded nuts that will accept legs in the future. Without the bolt legs, the screen will sit about 1/2" off the bottom supported by the bottom rolled ring. While it uses a max of 5 legs, you can use it without the center leg in case your heating element is in the way. The heights listed in the drop down refer to how much clearance you will get between the bottom of the pot and the bottom of the FB support structure.


Based on listed specs on popular pots, this 13" model should fit:

Bayou 1310 13.25"
Bayou 1430 13.5"
Blichmann G2 10g 13.5"
Amcyl 10g 13.5"
Megapot 1.2 10 14"
Spike 10g 13.8"

Of course the fit is not tight, but as long as the bag doesn't have several inches of slack, it should not get pulled down into spaces smaller than 1/2".

4 of 5 Great idea September 18, 2020
Reviewer: Nicholas Turner from Hanford, CA United States  
Like it, but my legs weren’t long enough to fully clear my heating element in my spike 10gal kettle. I got the 3.5” legs. They’re just bolts so I’ll just pick up some stainless 3.75” or 4”. I bought this just to keep my chiller off my heating element. Great ideas as usual. Just wish the legs were located closer to the edge so they sat on the step of my kettle.

5 of 5 Amazing craftsmanship January 31, 2020
Reviewer: Jason M from Essington, PA United States  
I didn’t anticipate it fitting around my BoilCoil in my 10 gallon Blichmann BoilerMaker, it fits well enough, I needed the 5” bolts for it. I believe it’ll work and if not, I’m so impressed with how well made it is, I’ll make sure I find a use for it. I would definitely buy from Brewhardware again.

5 of 5 Amazing Product, Even Better Price! January 26, 2020
Reviewer: Dylan Peters from Tamaqua, PA United States  
When I originally talked with Bobby, I though about purchasing the Anvil False Bottom (which seems really solid as well). But boy am I glad I went with this one. Not only was it half the price, but it's adjustable, I can easily fit the element plus a thermowell in around it, and it definitely keeps the bag above the burner so there is no chance of scorching my bag! If you are BIAB without a false bottom, get this for extra protection! It's built incredibly well!

5 of 5 Quality item January 13, 2020
Reviewer: Mark from Ames, IA United States  
Fits my Ss Brewtech 10-gallon kettle very nicely for BIAB with stovetop for heating. No burrs or sharp edges.
