Default Keggle false bottom concerns

So I just picked up this Keggle with false bottom today and the false bottom is quite small and I fear the design would encourage channeling. I currently have 3 kegs cut ready for welds but this was way to good o a deal to pass up.

So should I grab something like this instead to have evenish clearance over the bottom....

I have a false bottom about that size only flat and it works awesome! I would try that before buying something else.

I think that's the same one I've been using... for years. Works great! What is the diameter? I think mine is 10-11 overall.

Edit: That's what she said

Haha yeah I think about 10 ish, with the skinny tall aspect of a Keggle I thought it wouldn't be that big of a deal thanks for the replies guys
