DetailsThe strongest, most effective false bottom on the planet—introducing the Titan™ Universal False Bottom for better beer, no matter how you brew it. Titan™ delivers high efficiency, clarity and a solid grain bed whether you mash in a MegaPot 1.2™, a cooler or a keggle.
A false bottom acts as a strainer, preventing grain particles from draining into the boil kettle with wort. An essential piece of all-grain equipment, we've built the Titan™ to be stronger and more effective than any other false bottom.
Our brewmasters have thrown every worst-case brewing situation at the Titan™. It has never clogged and never collapsed. The two-piece proprietary Titan™ pickup tube supports the dome to withstand whatever pressure your biggest brew day can muster.
The Titan™ pickup tube gets closer to the floor of your mash tun than any other false bottom. You'll be able to transfer more of your wort into the boil kettle, leaving less than ¼" behind in what is called the "dead space".
With its chrome-like sheen and smooth edges, it's a beautiful piece of all-grain equipment that keeps the rest of your equipment beautiful, too. No scratched brewing vessels or clogged ball valves. Just a smooth flow, clear wort and an effective, stress-free brew day.
Required but not included: a 3/8 barb for the inside of your kettle or cooler and a short length of high-temp tubing to connect the barb to the elbow on the false bottom. Worm clamps can also help secure this connection.

Is it a 1/4" less like the 17"BEST ANSWER: It's exactly 19"Is there any way to get this with a 1/2" barb instead of 3/8" ?BEST ANSWER: I changed mine out and used another from another source not available from midwestIs there a tendency at all for this to start floating as you're doughing in? What keeps it pressed to the bottom as you're filling the kettle?
Thanks in advance.BEST ANSWER: No, it should not float up any. When installed, the tubing that connects it to the bulkhead on the kettle or mash tun is fairly rigid, so that has some effect at holding it in place, and the weight of the false bottom itself will also help to keep it in place while you're stirring up the grain and strike water.
- Mike W, Midwest SuppliesCurrently I have an old flat false bottom and I have a whirlpool arm installed in my Boil Kettle for recirculating the wort back into the kettle and also for creating a pile of trub and hops in the center. I really would like to swap my old false bottom for this domed one which is really nice, my concern is whether it will affect the performance of my whirlpool arm because of the shape of this false bottom, I mean, the pile of trub in the center will be not possible by using this domed false bottom, is that correct?. ThanksBEST ANSWER: While it may not have the exact same effect as a flat false bottom would, the whirlpool will still gather trub in the center and the false bottom will trap this in the kettle. this is the setup that I use and it has been very effective for me.Is this false bottom 305 stainless steel?BEST ANSWER: 304 SS actually. Cheers!
