Can you still brew a 23L batch in a 100L set up with no real problems?

My normal brew was 52 litres, but then I bought the 120 litre conical. :roll: but don't see why I couldn't go lower with limitations. Mash tun would need preheating as its a beast of thickish :hmm: stainless and a splash of mash would need HERMs running to keep things happy, HLT has vertical elements, being an old domestic cylinder upside down with an extra immersion soldered on, so minimum water fill must be 35 litres :) kettle needs 20 litres to cover element. So guess thats my real lower limit.

I already have a 50L boiler (thst I had from Powell brewing, fantastic service) and a burco HLT and a cool box mash tun, just need to sort it all out.

But I do like the idea of a thermo mash tun, but if I did get one I would be paying for it till the end of time lol. Unless I end up with a big win from the bookies or win the lotto.
Better start playing the lotto I think lol

Depends :) in a 98l pot 1cm of depth roughly equals 2l of volume, so if using kettle elements needing a 40cm hole you may find a fair proportion of a 23l final volume sitting below the elements.. Mrlards 1.25" lwd 100% brewing elements can easily be mounted to sit under 10l of liquor, and if heating with gas its not an issue at all..

But is doable with a bit of thought in the planning to cater for it.

Does anyone have an Idea of how much a false bottom for a 38.5ltr thermo pot would set me back?

Mrlard does, well he knew the size needed for my pot ;) he will cut 1mm shy so a split beerline edge can be fitted... :thumb:

What connection did yours come with? (I see Mr lard has a 3/8 barb and angel homebrew have an upgraded 1/2" nipple and 1/2" hone barb) How do you connect your false bottom to the tap?

i went bottom drain so just needed to suspend the grain off the bottom, for the domed fb solution i would use the 1/2" 12mm id silicone hose, remembering to extend some hose off the tap to create the siphon effect to maximise the drain. to minimise the deadspace further look at adding a bit more tube to the inside of the dome to extend down to a mm or so clearance off the pot bottom. it should not effect the drain flow at all as even 1mm depth under 15mm diameter tube has an open area in excess of 20mmsq
