    Excellent product

    Fit my 10 gallon Lowe's Igloo cooler perfectly and came with more tubing than needed. A good washing and 1 to 2 feet of teflon tape and my mash tun was ready.

    This false bottom fit the bottom of my igloo cooler perfectly. It was easy to fit in, use, and kept the grains where they should be.

    Best deal for a false bottom for a 10 gallon igloo cooler out there. Thick domed stainless and it feels sturdy. My friend has been using his for over a year now so i bought one too.

    Works Great, Set-up A Bit Tricky

    Posted by Paul on 21st Sep 2015

    A few people have already mentioned these issues but the length of the adaptor that connects the valve to the interior parts is not a small matter - no pun intended, and lack of directions can cause problems as well. I've been involved with major plumbing projects over the years so the assembly of the tubing and valve was not a big issue. If you don't have a background, it can be a bit tricky. The manufacturer could alleviate this problem by including a basic instruction set. Something as simple as "Do this this second...." etc. would help. Minus a star for those two points.
    Other than that, couldn't be happier with the product. I was going to make my own but I quickly realized it was difficult to purchase just one of part "x" and one of part "y". You had to buy three or four of each part which jacked up the total cost to, at least for me in Ohio, slightly above what BREW international was selling the set for. Granted, you could use those parts for repairs later on but I only brew every six to eight weeks. It would be awhile for me to see a return on that investment and, chances are, I would have lost those extra parts anyway.
    I would buy it again if I needed to.

    solid construction. great value

    I'm giving 4 stars only because there are not any instructions included, and if you're not familiar with mash tuns with false bottoms it can be confusing.

    Just slightly short of 5 star

    This kit is a bargain. The nipple is a little short; no matter how I adjusted it it would not reach through the cooler. However for less than $2.50 at the plumbing supply store I got one that works and the kit is still the best bargain around.

    Get a bigger nipple

    Posted by Geoff on 13th Mar 2015

    The kit is great and the price can be beat. However the standard 1" nipple set does not fit the 10 gallon rubbermaid home depot coolers. Had to order a 1-1/2" nipple.

    The quality of the false bottom and weld less bulkhead setup was top notch.
