I've set up my tall shoe box tubs with a row of 9/32" FAE holes (not the more familiar 1/4") just above the sub level and use them as a dunking aid. Take three 1/4" dowels (or however many you need) long enough to span the width of the tub plus an inch and space them equally across the sub through those holes. Then fill the tub with water, after the requisite dunk time period turn the tub on end and drain. Then remove the dowels after setting it level. The only problem I encountered was I originally drilled them to 1/4" and the dowels expanded creating the obvious situation. Duhhh. I haven't had any contamination problems using this method. At first I wiped them with iso but eventually stopped and saw no contams developing. I like this so much better than weighing the cake down.
