Default Calling all Blichmann 20gal pot owners

Do you do single batches in these? I'm thinking going 15/15/20 on my next setup. I do more than half single batches (6 gallons/8.5 preboil). My double batches are at 15 gallons preboil. Just wanted to make sure everything will work well before I drop $1000 on pots. I'm thinking so, since these pots are taller than they are wide.

I don't have the Blichmann pot, but I have checked them out in the store. They are definitely a nice choice. Personally, I chose a heavy duty 15 gallon pot from Morebeer, because I wanted a pot that was heavier/thicker with the tri-ply bottom. I also wanted to outfit the pot with only what I really needed: I didn't need the sight glass or the thermometer, but you may like the extras. I don't think you can go wrong with the Blichmann, especially the Blichmann kettle kit deals you can get off Midwest Brewing Supplies.

When you buy their kits, you save more. Look at their all-grain kettle kits, you will see what I mean. I do have the blichmann burner, which is very nice, and weighs just under 30 pounds, it's big and heavy duty!

I have a 20 and 3x15. I do both 6 and 12 gallon batches. You won't be let down.

How much water do you need in the kettle before the thermometer is contacted?
