I use a cake cooling rack in the bottom of my BK to keep the bag off the bottom. It allows water to circulate under the bag. Worked fine for me.

I see a lot of brewers on YouTube using binder clips to keep their bags secured to the pot. I'm wondering if pre-brew if you could make sure the bottom of the bag won't reach the bottom of the pot and set the bag before bringing your water up and pouring in your grains. Might give that a shot next round.

I use binder clips on mine and have no problems. I did a batch this past week and with the colder weather and a windy day, I had to fire it up 3 times. I will be looking at adding some sort of insulation material to my pot while mashing going forward.
