Default Safe way to mark level in brew kettle

Is there one? I know it would be better to install a sight glass, but I don't really have the equipment for that right now, so I need a safe alternative to mark level inside the kettle. Thanks.



The only thing more asinine than stupid rules is the enforcement of rules simply because they are the rules.
