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?

Honestly? Didn't expect to hear that. Thought the mesh would be a lot easier to deal with once it was installed. Does it filter correctly? Is it hard to clean?

For those who have done BIAB using a metal stockpot type basket, how much grain can these 30-qt / 44-qt baskets hold?

I'm thinking about giving BIAB a whirl using a metal basket from Bayou Classic but I'm not sure about the total grain capacity of these baskets.

My kettle is the Boilermaker 10-gal. (d=13.5" x h=16.5")
