I'm just wondering what everyone uses for a starter vessel when brewing over 20 gallons.
Obviously the 5000 or 2000 ML flask things are too small, even when using a stir plate.
I was thinking of using a 5 gallon better bottle, filling it to 3 gallons and using a stir plate (a big stir plate that is)
I've tried to use a 5 gallon glass carboy, but the magnets just weren't strong enough to go through all that glass, and the bottom is concave..which makes it practically impossible to use on my stir plate.
(was thinking the plastic on a better bottle would be thinner and not concave on the bottom)
