I use a fold-out metal steamer insert (with the central spike removed, if it has one).

Like just about everyone on this thread has said, it is really an unnecessary piece of equipment to have a false bottom. I use binder clips, and if I absolutely need to turn the burner on, I just lift it up a bit, clip it on, and stir as I heat.

These -25 degree wind chill temps here in northern Illinois kill the high temps in my mash in my garage. HAHA Cold weather brewing!

I have a steamer basket with bolts in the side ensure it does not hit the elements considering mine is a 3500 watt 120 volt ebiab.

I use a small round baking cooling rack on the bottom of the pot to support the bag. I pull it out of the pot before the boil with a long spoon.
