We don’t have to tell you what happens when a false bottom doesn’t center properly! Many others are made with materials so thin, that even stirring the mash could damage them.
The SABCO False-Bottom was designed for keg-style homebrew kettles.
Perfectly cut to an outside diameter of 15″, this product self-centers naturally at the point where kegs kettles curve to form the lower dome. Fits most all cylindrical keg style brewing systems. Not suggested for older Hoff-Stevens keg style with smaller, bottom diameter. Measure to be sure!
Made from heavy 16-gauge stainless, it also folds in half using two heavy duty stainless-steel hinges and lifts easily out of the kettle. If you’re creating your own homebrew kettle, the lid opening can be located higher on the upper dome, creating more capacity, and yet be as small as 7-3/4″ in diameter.
The False Bottom in the photos has received a 9/16″ center hole, to accommodate Sabco’s “Tri-Clamp Siphon” assembly as shown. However, you can purchase your False Bottom with or without the siphon hole. Click on your choice above.
False Bottoms are also equipped with two center support legs that are adjustable. ( See inset photo ) These give extra strength to accommodate even the heaviest loads of grain. Perforation holes are brewer standard 3/32″ diameter on 5/32″ centers.
