Universal False Bottom

(1 customer review)


There are a myriad of false bottoms on the market today that range to fit just about any vessel on the market. There is also a rising demand for quality trub dams to block that hoppy goo from entering our fermenters. In classic Exchilerator style, our new false bottom functions as both!

The universal false bottom from Exchilerator will fit just about any kettle, mash tun, or square / rectangle shaped cooler! Our unique design provides even pressure and positive flow during your brew day allowing liquids to uniformly run along and through its adjacent sides. Unlike usual flat false bottoms with limited strength, this design is extremely sturdy and will easily hold grain bills of excess of 250 pounds.

During the sparge and when recirculating, we have found this design dramatically improves efficiency and reduces grain bed tunneling. In our opinion this provides the best opportunity for capturing the sweetest wort possible.

When used in a boil kettle, this thing really filters hops well and allows a perfect whirlpool while pushing some of the cleanest wort you’ve ever seen to your fermenter!

Coupled with a Hangover and sparge arm, the Exchilerator false bottom turns just about any kettle, keggle, or cooler into one of the sweetest wort making machines on the planet!

There are two sizes

  • 10”L x 8”W x 3.5”H – Will fit kettles with13” or larger flat bottoms measured from the inside edge of the bottom radius
  • 14.5” L x 8” W x 3.5” H – Will fit kettles with 17” or larger flat bottoms measured from the inside edge of the bottom radius.

Coolers must be measured by length and a minimum width of 9” at the bottom.


To use it as a trub damn just connect it to your drain port via a direct mechanical or a soft connection E.I silicone tubing before you fill the kettle with sweet wort. Boil,add your hops, whirlpool,chill and push clear clean wort to your fermenter.
No more plugged pumps,chillers, hoses!

    This false bottom is an excellent addition to a brew kettle. I use it because my pump cannot effectively clear whole cone hops, and even a few entering the pump at the same time will clog it. I recommend using a hard attachment if using for a boil kettle, as a vigorous boil will float the false bottom if a soft attachment is used. I have a welded port, so I used a 1/2 compression to 1/2 MNTP adapter, tightening the compression fitting just snug enough to lock it into place for the boil without deforming the tube. Great product from a company that makes the best!
