Brew day tomorrow, and I need a larger kettle. Given the fact I'm making the jump to AG, I wanted a pot that could handle a full boil, ergo 10 gallons. I had a line on a used Polarware 10 gallon that would have suited me perfectly, but turns out it sold, which leaves me scrambling.
But lo and behold, not a single store here in the SF Bay Area carries 10 gallon pots, apart from Williams - who refuse to let me pick it up from their place, they HAVE to ship it. (So not going to get here in time.) B3? Your choice is 8 or 15 gallon. Oak Barrel? 7.5 or 13.2 gallon (and DAMNED expensive! Their ACTUAL prices are 30% higher than they have on their website, which they just say "Oh, that hasn't been updated in a while!") Beverage People? Only 8 gallons and 15 gallons in stock.
I understand the mail order spots like AHS and Northern have their megapots, but it's driving me mental that I can't just go to a local shop - of which the Bay Area is blessed with many - and just buy the @#$# pot I need. For tomorrow.
Looks like I'm going to have to buy a @#$# turkey fryer in a pinch! Feh!
(Sorry, rant over. And when I ranted to my wife, she didn't seem too interested!)
