Stainless Steel False Bottom for BIAB


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.

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″ and 17.5″

Here’s a video from Bobby at Brew Hardware talking about their newer line of TRUE Bulkheads.

The bulkhead is available in a number of configurations.  The 5/8″ Barb version is included in the Cooler Conversion kit, that I have.  If you’ve dealt with other weldless kits you’ll know that typically a certain finesse is required when installing.  These are different.  You can actually tighten them down.  See: Hands on Review: Brew Hardware’s Cooler Mash Tun Conversion Kit – Making a Mash Tun

FFL to Male Beer Thread Adapter – homebrew kegs on commercial system – $5.99

Female Flare Adapter to Beer Thread

About, From Brew Hardware:

“Woah, what’s that? A game changer? Yes!

Picture this. You use homebrew corny kegs for you beer but you want to bring a keg over to your buddy’s house for a party. The problem is that he has a commercial kegerator and no, he won’t let you cut the hoses to attach your ball lock QDs. How about trying to serve from a corny keg at a commercial facility, such as for a wedding? There’s no way you’re going to get them to modify the lines.

Thread these fittings on your MFL equipped ball lock beer and gas quick disconnects and now you can thread on any hoses that are part of a Sanke keg dispensing system.

The picture shows the adapter threaded on to a black QD and there are other pieces shown as well. This item and price is for ONE fitting with 1/4″ FFL threads on one side and 7/8″ Male Beer thread. It does not include anything else in the picture. Beer thread is what is typically found on the back of a faucet shank. Therefore it is compatible with all of our tailpieces and beer nuts.”

As of this posting, Brew Hardware has this marked down to $5.99.  Check product page for up to the minute price and availability.
