Mash Tun False Bottom

I fashioned a false bottom for my mash tun the other day. This is to strain the wort from the grain when it has completed steeping for a while.

I used a frying shield (something that you put over oil when you are frying to avoid getting oil splashed onto you).

Below are a few images. I still need to bend a piece of copper pipe to connect the false bottom to the tap in the mash tun. Enjoy.
