Default False bottom I made.

I haven't had a chance to try it out, but i will with my next batch. It's pretty simple and i am sure some one else has something similar.

I bought a 4ft strip of aluminum and bent it to fit snug inside my kettle, bent the end to they pop together and press on the sides snug enough to not move.




I used paint strainer since it seems to be something several people use, if there is anything better please let me know.




I put the hoop inside the paint strainer and folded it over so it doubles up the net.






It's pretty much adjustable so i can place it anywhere in the pot i want and it holds very tight.




Added this picture showing it holding some weight





Ill let ya'll know how it works out.

Nice.. I like that idea. Looks like it will be easy to remove and adjust if necessary.
