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.

9 months agoperfect for homemade mash tunI built my own mash tun at home and this was the best option for filtering the wort before boil. Great qualitySeptember 24, 2018Purchased
1 year agoVery porous!I used to use a tiny false bottom (Midwest doesn't even sell it any more) in a 5 gallon converted Rubbermaid cooler, and the sparge would get stuck. Now I have the 11.5" Titan and a 10 gallon. Frankly, it flowed too well, and the brew was very cloudy. I recycled a lot trying to establish a good grain bed. I hope I can fix this in the future.August 5, 2018Purchased

over 2 years ago3 or 4 stars? Ah yeah, 3.Three because I had to change out parts. The elbow is TALL and stood way above the ball valve on my 10 gal cooler. The hose connection wasn't reliable and it didn't siphon well, would leave at least a half gallon of liquid in the mash tun. So I took the elbow off the old 9 inch, added 1/2 inch of hose for siphon, and got a very good mash result. The point is, though, that as purchased without changing the elbow this gave very disappointing results.February 28, 2016Great productReally enjoyed using this in my new recirculating mash system. It worked great, I had very little wasted wort, which is awesome.February 4, 2016Response from Midwest SuppliesThanks for the review!November 2, 2016Midwest SuppliesWorked like a champ for an extract brew!A quick review as an occasional extract brewer. I bought this hoping that someday I'll make the jump to all grain brewing, but wanted to try it with my next batch. I added coconut to the boil along with some other larger items I didn't want in my fermenter. This thing kept 99% of the trub in the kettle and helped me with efficiency like no other batch, even for an extract! You won't be disappointed!!December 24, 2015

Browse 7 questions Browse 7 questions and 19 answersHow do you stop stuck sparges when using with a 10 gallon cooler mashtun? I have been using for a few years and get a stuck sparge almost every time. Grain crush is done at Midwest or Northern Brewer and for 5 gallon batches. I have tried many different techniques: rice hulls, increased mash thickness from 1.25 to 1.5 qts/lb, added boiling water to mashout at 170 degrees, replaced the elbow and high-temp hose to larger 1/2 inch size. Once stuck I've tried blowing back through the ball valve, restirring, adding more water. Thanks for the help!BEST ANSWER: I've used the false bottom for several years. I use about 1/2# of rice hulls and follow the Beersmith water suggestions. I also do a 15 minute rest at 122 degrees on the way to mash temp. I haven't had a stuck sparge since I began this regimenWill this fit a standard 10 gallon cooler that is used as a Mash Tun (Lowes/Home Depot) style?BEST ANSWER: Yes, I use this in a 10 gallon Igloo (the big orange cooler) and it fits perfectly in the bottom. Make sure you but the correct high temp transfer tube and cut it yourself for a perfect fit. Works great and no need to use rice hulls. Small pieces of grain will flow out during the initial circulation, but simply pour the wort back on top. I would not recommend using any rice hulls with this device. I tried and it clogged.What is the tubing required to connect the false bottom 90 barbed connection to Isoflow slip barbed connection?11.5" Titan™ Universal False BottomBEST ANSWER: I use a short piece (approximately 4") of 3/8" high temp silicone tubing. I do not use any clamps to secure the tubing to the barbed ends.What tubing product is recommended to connect the false bottom barbed connection to the Isoflow Hose Barbed slip in?11.5" Titan™ Universal False BottomBEST ANSWER: I use 3/8 ID X 1/2 OD silicone tubing. You only need about 6 inches. Due to it's good temperature resistance, silicone doesn't take a set like other tubings, so it stays on the barbs better.What type of threading does the pick up and barb assembly use? I have tried several 1/2" NPT fittings and they do not fit. Exceptional product!BEST ANSWER: The thread specs for that are non-standard. and metric. M21 x 1.5What seals the side and bottom of false bottom device to prevent grains from plugging the pickup port on the bottom of the false bottom? Is the bottom of the liquid pickup at the same level as the bottom part of the perforated dome, or does the side of the false bottom seal against the side of the container/cooler?BEST ANSWER: I bought this for my boil kettle a while back, it's really nice, but there is no seal for the sides of the bottom. It is heavy enough to keep itself down, but I would not be able to speak on its ability to seal the sides in a cooler. The pickup is probably 1/4" set down from the top of the dome. All that being said, unless you're really scooping at the bottom of your cooler, grain is probably not going to get under the sides and clog anythingI have Megapot that is a couple of years old. What kind of fitting would I need to attach it to my bulkhead?BEST ANSWER: If it is threaded inside the bulkhead (not the IsoFlow), that would 1/2" NPT x 3/8" barb that would connect to the barb on the Titan false bottom with 3/8" ID Silicone tubing. Worm gear clamps would also be recommended.
