Sturdy stainless steel false bottom stand, designed for different heights and kettle sizes. Only for kettles with bottom drain. The individual parts are pressed together and welded in several locations for additional strength. The stand parts are laser cut in Germany and assembled in our store in Augburg. Each stand is sold with a stainless steel eye bolt that closes the hole in the false bottom and allows for easy assembly and disassembly.
If you are using your domed kettle as a mash tun and not recirculating or using a pump, you do not need a stand. You can simply place the false bottom into the kettle.
If you are recirulating your mash, the false bottom requires additional support.
The low stand is designed to provide the required support without adding additional height to the false bottom. The false bottom will still be located as far down into the kettle as possible (just where the dome starts).
The tall stand is designed to clear both the round and straigt or wavy heating elements. The false bottom will be located higher in the kettle, above the heating elements. In the 85L and 115L kettles it will be above both heating elements.
These false bottoms are specifically designed for Craft Hardware domed bottom kettles and will not work in any other kettle that we know of.
