4.7 / 5.026 ReviewsGood valueIts cheaper than a false bottom and works just as well if not better. I check to make sure the mesh is on securely, and am careful to not bash with my mash paddle. Other than that, there's nothing to go wrong.February 20, 2014better and cheaper than a false bottomI've used it in 7 brews with no stuck sparges. As long as you don't bash it with your mash paddle, and take care to check it for looseness, its a good alternative to a false bottom. Much easier to work with and clean too.December 29, 2013I prefer this to a false bottomIts less durable and can be smashed with a mash paddle if you aren't careful but overall I like it. I have no stuck sparges. No grains can get under the false bottom. Its a good low tech solution.September 27, 2013Good so farI've been using it this year with no problems. No stuck sparges and it stays together. Just be careful you don't crush it with your mash paddle. Just make sure the clamp is secure. Easy to clean and a fraction of the price of a false bottom.August 17, 2013No more stuck spargesSince switching to this I haven't had a stuck sparge. I used to occasionally get a stuck sparge with false bottoms. This is simpler and less expensive and works well.August 1, 2013I like it better than a false bottomI haven't had stuck sparges with this screen, and I have had them with false bottoms. Just be careful not to crush it with your mash paddle. Plus you save a lot of money. And it's easier to remove and put back.June 18, 2013Works GreatSave a lot by a pot and with out a false bottom.April 19, 2013I prefer this to a false bottomFalse bottoms invariable let grain under the edges and eventually block. That doesn't happen to screens. The only danger is that you crush the screen. As long as you are careful with your mash paddle, and inspect the screen for separation, it will serve you well.April 7, 2013Strong and durableSince switching to this from a false bottom I've not had a stuck sparge. The false bottoms are prone to grain leaking around the edges. That wont happen with this. Its strong and flexible. Just check the clamp from time to time.March 31, 2013Stron and works greatThe mesh is very strong, but still flexible enough to bend to fit my mash tun. strained out the grain and drained the wort effectively. Very satisfied.March 26, 2013
