If I recall, my roommate oversparged a bit and overshot his boil volume. He ran a very vigorous boil with the false bottom in there in an attempt to boil off more than normal. When he was done, it was difficult to pry the false bottom out of all the "charcoal" that formed and took a HELL of a lot of scrubbing to get it all clean. I kiiiinda want to avoid that. I'm thinking it shouldn't be an issue with the triple layered bottom to the kettle.
