I have made small covers from voile fabric that slide over my ss hose braids. I tie a knot on one end and secure the other end with a zip tie. Using this method on my last 20+ brews I have yet to have a stuck/slow sparge. The voile material is the same cloth used for BIAB style bags or hop sacks. You may want to try this option if you don't have the money funds for a false bttom right now. You can buy the fabic in the curtain section of Walmart for $5. Cut the loop off of the part the curtain rod slides through and you will have nice sock to slide over you ss braid. You can get several of these from just one section of the curtain loop and reuse them.
