^ that is an excellent idea.

I do the strainer on top of bucket way but can't find a strainer strong enough to not fall into the bucket when pressed on. I need a better solution so I'm wondering what other options are out there.

or, if that's not strong enough

oven rack

I found that I had a metal wire rack that used to be in my fermentation fridge. It is the perfect size to span the kettle. I'm brewing today so I'm going to give it a try. Thanks for the advice! - N_G

I use a metal oven rack and put bag inside homer bucket with holes drilled in bottom. I use the bucket b/c i made a doppelbock with 22 lbs of grain and the bag spilled over the sides of the pot getting wort all over the pot and burner.

I drilled a bunch of holes in the bottom of an old fermentation bucket and place the bag in that bucket then place it over an old pot to let it drain down into it..... I also throw all fears of tannins aside and place another bucket over the bag and press the heck out of it to get all the wort out that I can *gasp* ... never had a problem!

I pressed it against the grate over the kettle and was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was. I am always shocked at how slippery hot wort is.
