Brew pot recommendations
 
Hello,

I'm looking to purchase a @9 gallon brew pot and am interested in recommendations and suggestions. I currently do extract brews, five gallon batches, using propane. Thanks!

I've been very happy with an 11 gallon bayou classic

The 9 gallon is only $2 cheaper.

I went with a heavier duty 10 gallon pot. For me it was a good compromise between price and quality. I have used it for two 6.5 gallon boils and am very happy.

I've been looking into morebeer's economy kettles with welded couplers.
You may wanna give them a look:

Budget/amount you can spend (or willing to spend)? Either way, get a 10 gallon (or 15 if you want to future proof it).

How about a brand new 1/2 bbls keg for $135!

This company sells them: http://www.toscaltd.com/industriesservedbeerkegs.html

How do they sell them?? I'm always looking out for more tall 1/4 bbl kegs (to ferment in).

Just sent an email off to from the contact page... Hope to hear back from them (and soon).

Pardon my ignorance but what is the benefit of the pots with couplers? Is it to transfer the wort to the fermenter without having to pour it? Or is there more to it?

And thank you all for the suggestions! My wife now has Christmas ideas! A win-win!

The couplers are for thermometers, valve, sight glasses, false bottoms, etc. Most people use a valve (for draining) and a thermometer. A false bottom/dip tube/Bazooka tube can also be attached on the inside.
