Brew Hardware’s Stainless Steel False Bottom for BIAB – $13.99 on Clearance!

BIABbottom15-2T

Stainless Steel False Bottom designed to keep your BIAB bag off the bottom of your kettle.

More from Brew Hardware

While our version 2 of this product is out of stock, we’ve decided to blow out our last bit of stock on our first edition units. Here’s how the clearance version differs. The V2 is built on flat bar supports and that allowed the leg attachment points to be much stronger and straighter. The V1 (the clearance one you’re potentially buying right now) was built on a round bar frame so the leg attachment points are tack welded and some are angled a bit. As long as you’re not trying to support an elephant or do some crazy amount of recirculation with a strong pump, it should be fine. These are discounted below cost so we don’t expect any complaints or returns.

OPTIONS:
You have the choice of several lengths during purchase, selectable 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 1/4″ off the bottom supported by the bottom rolled ring. 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.

IMPORTANT: You must use care and evaluate how fast of recirculation your exact bag can handle before it starts clogging with fine particles. It is possible to circulate too quickly and create a hydraulic vacuum underneath that will damage the BIAB false bottom. This warning especially applies to the 17.5 Diameter bottom. Due to the vast surface area, it doesn’t take much pump suction to exert a massive force. Please throttle your pumps down a bit, especially if you mill near flour particle sizes.

Again, make no mistake about it. If you see another product like this on any restaurant supply store, amazon or ebay, know that they are all chrome plated steel and they will rust.

Based on listed specs on popular pots, this 17.5″ model should fit:

Blichmann G2 20 gallon 17.75″
Megapot 1.2 20 gallon 17.7
Bayou 20 and 25g 18.5″
Spike 20g 17.7″

SS Brewing Technologies 20g 17.7″
Brew Built 22g 17.7″
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″.

 

As of this posting, 17.5″ BIAB false bottoms are available for just $13.99 on clearance.  Limited quantities.  Price, promotions and availability can change quickly.  Please note that product prices and availability are subject to change.

Back in Stock: Brew Hardware’s Stainless Steel False Bottom for BIAB

BIABbottom15-2T

Stainless Steel False Bottom designed to keep your BIAB bag off the bottom of your kettle.

More from Brew Hardware

“First is a 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.

Our units start with 1.25mm 304SS welded wire mesh on 1/2″ centers. The mesh is supported by a double outer ring, both on top and bottom of the mesh and a pair of cross braces across the middle. This support material is nearly 1/4” in diameter an very sturdy. The legs are made of M8 metric bolts and are threaded into five nuts that are welded to the mesh. 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 1/4″ 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.

Again, make no mistake about it. If you see another product like this on any restaurant supply store, amazon or ebay, know that they are all chrome plated steel and they will rust.”

 

This is available in three sizes, depending on your kettle – 13″, 14.75″ and 17.5″

Back In Stock: The 14.75″ and 17.75″ sizes have been out of stock for a while, but are available again as of this posting. Price, promotions and availability can change quickly.  Please note that product prices and availability are subject to change. Prices and availability were accurate at the time this post was published; however, they may differ from those you see when you visit the product page.  Check the product page for current price, description and availability
