Our false bottom is for use with our standard Spike kettle line that uses NPT fittings. For our standard Spike+ kettle line that uses TC fittings please see HERE.

Design Features:

-All stainless design; no Silicone gasket to make a seal
-Low profile design; extremely low dead space (<.25gal)
-Best filtering on the market due to dual stage filter design; 99.9% grain filtering efficiency
-Pickup tube and push to connect fitting are included
-False bottom and pick up tube are Made in the USA!

2 Stage Filtering:
Stage 1: Filters through top plate's optimally engineered sized laser cut slits

Stage 2: Bottom ring supports the grain weight while also filtering the wort again before it reaches the pickup tube

**False bottoms are not designed to filter pellet hops in the boil kettle. Instead you'll want to create a whirlpool to center the hop material and then drain using a side pickup (HERE)**

This product along with the 30gal. Kettle took my efficiency from around 65% to around 80. Great product. East to use and clean. Only issue is the center pickup tube is hard to install when this is in place.

False Bottom works well.

I got a good efficiency with this false bottom. Some grains did make it through it though, making me have to screen the wort out on the way to the Boil Kettle. Overall I'm very happy with the purchase. It was really nice being able to increase the temperature on the fly during the mash.

Great design.

I used this in a 10 gallon Spike kettle as a mash tun. My extract efficiency went up from 75% in my converted keg to 85% and it held temp way better. A little tough to get in and out with the dip tube. Maybe there is a trick to it?

Build quality is superb. False bottom is really easy to clean with great efficiency. For the price the spike system is a great choice.
