or how about a big silicone o-ring that's the perfect outside diameter for the inside diameter of the basket and drops down to the bottom. Such as McMaster Part: 9396K393.
I just kind of thought that the hop matter would expand as much as it needed to and a 'weight' wouldn't be needed, but I guess you're saying that the bag would flop around at the beginning of the boil and make it difficult?
