Would a slotted false bottom prevent uniform compaction better than a perforated false bottom?
I'm researching parts for my first all-grain mash tun build. My intent is a round 10-gallon beverage cooler using a false bottom. All false bottoms I've come across are the round perforation type, except that one.
The only advantage I can think of with this slotted false bottom is that it might prevent uniform compaction. Maybe it would be less resilient to channeling, but it seems that's the compromise of the design if I understand the issues correctly.
