In order to separate the grain (crushed with either the MattMill Klassik or the MattMill Kompakt) from the wort (a.k.a. lautering) the wort gets filtered using a false bottom which sits in the lower part of the lauter pot.
The MattMill false bottom is an easy-to-use, inexpensive and durable solution for the home brewer.
- Stainless steel
- dishwasher proof
- Special innovative form for optimal, complete and hassle free lautering
- Reduced clogging due to laser-cut slits instead of regular holes
- Several sizes are available upon request, including one version for the Schengler Thermoport.
The small version (MMLB-316; 316 mm diameter) is kinked to leave a gap between the bottom of the pot and the grain. The larger, flat versions (MMLB-357/-397/-447/-497; 357, 397, 447 and 497 mm diameter, respectively) have bails mounted to the false bottom as spacer. Two different heights are available (2.5 and 7 cm, respectively).
