Description

Please note: these False Bottom Kits are intended for use with an older generation of BrewBuilt kettles that are no longer produced. The kettle needs to have internal 1/2" female NPT threads to pair with the 1/2" male threads on the Quick Disconnect dip tube.

Designed for Brewing. Built to Last.  The new line of Brewbuilt kettles, made from 304 stainless steel, offers an unparalleled mix of features for the price. At the very top of the list are two welded-in place couplers that offer a lifetime of leak free use.  As you can imagine, welding in a coupler costs more than punching a hole and using a gasketed (ie weld-less) fitting. Welded fittings offer a permanent connection that to us is worth every penny.  The second unique feature that we absolutely love about these kettles is the notched lid with silicone plug.  This notch allows you so much flexibility; you can use an immersion chiller, one of our Ultimate Sparge Arms for mashing, tie off hop bags, take a temp reading during cooling, or whatever else we all can dream up.  

The BrewBuilt Mash Tun
We've taken our Heavy Duty False Bottom setups, and kicked them up a notch.  A Silicone gasket rings this false bottom, insuring no grain makes it through to your boil.  A slick Quick Disconnect Maximizer gets every last drop of wort from your mash tun, and makes installation a breeze.  The maximizer is centered, and allows us to drop the False bottom closer to the kettle floor, minimizing dead space, giving you more room for those burly brews.

These Mash tuns are Built for Brewing, and will serve you for years!

Unique 22 Gallon Size
This size was born from customer feedback. Many customers making 10 gallons actually want to end up with 10 gallons at the end of kegging. That means you can be starting a boil with 13-14 gallons of wort to account for boil off, kettle loss, and fermenter loss. The 22 Gallon size kettle allows you to boil those quantities with plenty of room for boil overs. Want to make a 15 gallon batch with friends... you can squeeze that in to! You'll never regret having a little extra kettle.

What is the diameter?
Eric Pavey on Dec 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: False bottom for 15 gallon Brewbuilt diameter is 15-1/2" without the gasket, and 15-7/8" with the gasket. With the gasket it fits inside 15-3/4" ID cattle snugly.
What size is the NPT fitting for the pickup tube?
Jeff McClain on Dec 13, 2020
BEST ANSWER: 1/2" FPT from the inside and 1/2" MPT on outside. A quick disconnect with 1/2" MPT is required to install on the inside of the kettle to connect the false bottom pickup tube to.

Dip tube
The dip tube could be longer or bent differantly as it leaves about a half gallon of wort behind.

Could use better quality controll
False bottom is used with Brewbuilt 15 gal. kettle and seemed nice. However the keyhole to fit the dip tube was too short (the elongated part). So the dip tube fitting would not reach all the way and would not snap in place. I ended up barely twisting the quick disconnect on inside the cattle and enlarging the hole with the dremel tool. But since stainless steel is so hard I hardly made any progress and even though dip tube now snaps in to place but it requires quite a bit of force. For something that cost this much I should not have to do any modifications and things should fit nicely.
Another complaint is that this false bottom leaves me with 1/2 gall of deadspace.

Perfect seal and good efficiency
It provides a perfect seal in the Brew Built kettle and does a great job. Very few grains are stuck in it when I go to clean it. It could be stiffer, as it bends and flexes a lot during installation and removal for washing.

question about this false bottom
Is the BrewBuilt 30gal false bottom meant to use ONLY as a mash tun false bottom or can it be used in the boil kettle? It is very low profile with great design for a mash, but the arm pulls directly from the center. I've been using a MoreBeer heavy duty 15 gal kettle w false bottom and diverter tube (as my boil kettle) for years so I am wondering if this is meant to be used in the boil or not? BrewBuilt has not responded to my query and I'm hoping to find an answer...

Thanks
