The NEW MiniMash Lauter Tun is designed from the ground up for brewers. It is not a converted water jug or picnic cooler. It will last longer than GOTT or any converted cooler on the market. The Deluxe Sparge Arm (sa12) is now included with your purchase of the Deluxe Mash Lauter Tun (mt15b).
The MiniMash Lauter Tun is a round, 15 gallon tank will hold up to 35 lbs of grain. Tank is 21 3/4″ tall by 15″ in diameter. 3/32″ screen holes are ideal for a good filter bed. 5/16″ thick walls provide mass for strength and good insulation. Transfers BTUs 100,000 times slower than stainless steel based on BTU transfer rate high-density polyethylene (HDPE). Sometimes a blanket or neoprene for insulation is needed in colder climates.
False Bottom. The true bottom is 12 1/4 inches in diameter and 1 3/4 inches deep. The size difference of the tank above forms a ledge inside. A stainless steel bolt is threaded through a center leg with a wing nut and washer to seal the screen in place tight against this ledge and the ledge. The flat screen is ideal for lautering and helps to prevent channeling. Brewers over the years use flat false bottoms. Our flat false bottom will not sag or allow grain to pass into the true bottom. The top of the bolt is an ideal depth measurement for stirring. Now it is easy to stir the grain without disturbing the filter bed.
