    The thickness of this false bottom was increased to a fraction under 1mm (going from memory). As a result it's still not what we would consider suitable for putting grain directly on. This particular false bottom has been designed to filter hops and the incidental piece of grain that comes out of the malt pipe. The idea of this is to protect your pump from blocking. I would say it does an excellent job of this too and it's one of the reasons why people like the BrewZilla units.

    Firstly the weight of the grain can be considerable and also if you get a stuck sparge the suction generated by the pump significantly increase the pressure on the false bottom especially of this large diameter. Although the suction is not really high on the pump, this suction over such a large diameter becomes a really significant force on the false bottom, so a much thicker screen would be better for this application.

    How come you don't use the actual malt pipe instead?

    Hi kegland,
    Do you know if the series 3 35L Robobrew false bottom will fit in the series 2 Robobrew? The original false bottom I have in the series 2 is warped out of shape and I am looking at replacing it.

    Yes the diameter is the same so they are compatible.

    --------------------------

    @KegLand-com-au - mine has the female threads, and the order date was 2/2/19, so maybe the wheels were just accidentally left off the order?

    It's best that we look up the order number. Can you please email us your order number and we will sort this out for you. With your alias on the forum alone its difficult for us to organise this for you.

    The false bottom will be going into a 360mm diameter SS pot, I was going to trim the FB to size.

    I like the idea of having a whole base flat FB and eliminate the need for fittings/hose to connect to valve like a domed FB has.

    This mlt will be used in a 3v setup, so I dont want to clean a malt pipe as well.

    What is the diameter of these false bottoms? I was looking at grabbing on too, but unfortunately there is no mention on the listing of the size.
    Thanks in advance

    Does anyone have recommendations for fermenting fridges for the Fermzilla 27L?

    It's too big for my current bar fridge. It even looks too tall for my keg fridge. I can't fit in a full size kitchen fridge, so I'd need something in between a bar fridge and a kitchen fridge. Any ideas?

    We have been working on a new fermenting fridge with heating and cooling which has been designed to suit the 27L and the 55L FermZilla. The only issue is this will not be available until the end of the year.

    Any chance of a video on the FermZilla? I seem to recall you guys taking about various options with the tank such as a thermoweld etc ?
