I have the same pot and it is not even close for a 5 gallon batch.I've done 10 gallons in it without any problems,10 gallon all grain batch you do have to watch when it starts to boil but it's still not bad. Five gallon batches do not even come close to boil overs.

Maybe I should have clarified... My second comment about it being close... was with regards to an installed thermometer on that top port... With only a five gallon batch, the water level may not reach the probe in that top hole. As far as a boil over, that won't happen with a pot that big.

That makes more sense I missed the comment from the OP immediately prior to yours and got the wrong end of the stick lol

Is this temp probe a good one? They have them on Amazon for 15 bucks.

Get to brewing! I think you'll find the Banjo is overkill....keep it on low because they can waste a lot of fuel and the heat will just go right up the sides, melting your valves. THIS will really help...a bit pricey, but probably necessary with the Banjo considering its width.

They paint them so us newbees can make our bright, shiny new pots look all discolored and broken in after our first use .
