Default Need Some Quick Advice

Just found this on Amazon:

Amazon.com: Imusa Stainless Steel Stock Pot, 12 Quart: Home & Garden

For 11 bucks I think this is a great deal. Its Stainless and it'll do 3 gallons (12 qts). Think this is good enough for a couple brewing sessions?

I'd say its not worth the effort. Get something that you can grow into.

Besides, three gallons will not let you boil three gallons, at most, 2 gallons.

I'd say get at least a 7 gallon (28 qt) so that you can do a full boil with five gallons. (realistically you may want 8 gallons so that you have a little extra freeboard).

A guy on ebay has some 9 gallon ones that have a thermometer and a 1/2 inch dump valve for 99 dollars. he is out now, but will have more.

Ditto.

Austin Homebrew Supply has a 10 gallon stainless pot for $60, with $6 shipping. I just got it and love it.

If you want a stovetop size pot, get a 5 gallon aluminum. They're cheap, and if you go all grain you can use it to heat sparge water.

That sounds great, I'll definitely check it out.

Thanks, guys, for the advice.
