We've fitted the false bottom so you don't have to think about how to do it.
We've used the better quality tap with the ball valve as it was difficult to fit the false bottom to the cheaper tap.
It's a very nice mash tun, click on the picture too see the nice shiny insides!
It's not insulated, you can lag it with stuff you buy at B and Q very cheaply. Make sure you don't buy the porous stuff as once it gets malt spilt on it it harbours bacteria and smells.
The false bottom means that you can fill it with hot water add grain then adjust the temperature with hot water. Leave to mash and rinse through the sparge liqour as the false bottom acts as the strainer.
