This guy seems to have quite a number of stainless pots in different sizes, but the one that caught my eye was an 11 Gallon Stainless pot with clad bottom for $59 + shipping. More than a few.
Seems he's also got 18 gallon pots at $99 + shipping. More than a few.
Disclaimer: Not mine & never bought from the guy. Just saw the deal. He's got other stuff up for sale, but the pots are @ 1/2 way down. http://shop.ebay.com/canaan573/m.html
Awesome find. I only wish I new the dimensions, seems short and wide. I would hope for a tall narrow pot ala Blichmann to control evaporation.
I'd rather control the evaporation of my dollars
Dimensions on 11 gallon pot:
Interior diameter: 17 1/2"
Interior Depth to top edge: 11 3/4"
Exterior Diameter excluding handles/including rolled edge: 18 3/8"
Clad base diameter: 16 1/8"
Overall Height: 12 1/8"http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-11-Gallon-St...item1c1884d1a2
Thank you for providing those dimensions!
What does everyone else think about evaporation should I be concerned or is this too good of deal and evaporation is a negligible factor?

I'm very interested in the quality of these pots... Has anyone ordered yet?
I'd rather have a bottle in front of me, than a frontal lobotomy.
You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline - it helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer.

More boil off means you can sparge more. To a point of course. But think how another half gallon or more would be nice on those big beers. You would get more sugar from your grain.
Highly considering one of these pots!
