Wedge Wire Screen False Bottoms
Tun vessels are used in the craft beer brewing process between the mash tun and
the brew kettle. The lauter tun separates the barley husks from the clear liquid wort. The
barley husks provide a natural filter bed through which the
wort is strained and drains out
of the lauter tun as a clear liquid.
