Propane still as well. Trying to work out exactly what I want and need on a eBIAB system.
I do the same thing as you but with a steamer rack to keep bag off the bottom of the pot. I haven't measured, but I would say it keeps it about 4 inches off of the bottom.
I can not use my chugger pump at full throttle as it will drain it from the bottom to fast.
I have been using a spring clamp to slow it down.
Very ghetto I know, but it works.
I now have a ball valve on the out put of the pump to further control things better, but haven't brewed with it yet.
I want to use a basket as I think it will make things easier and cleaner (less spilling etc).
