Some good answers on that link Joshua. My personal preference would be to use a no chill cube rather than leaving the wort with an air pocket above it. I was using the ones with taps and did have a couple of infections admittedly though. Mine were from the tap location at the bottom of the cube. The...

All good advice here.
I have a pulley system which use to lift the bag and tie off above the vessel.
