I'm using an 8 gallon now, considering buying the 15 gallon (60 quart) Aluminum Bayou pot from Lowes ($99) but I'm cheap. I guess I could always drill a hole and add a spicket to the 8 gallon pot.

I have a 8 g aluminum pot that I am using indoors on my stove (no access to the outside or a propane burner) and I cant get a 6 g boil unless I leave the lid on. I have already insulated it with aluminum backed insulation but it hasn't helped any. can anyone help me out?

as far as boiling over anyway. I thought I was close to finishing but I'm not that lucky and I don't think my sculpture will ever really be done.

Now let's make some beer.
I used a 32 quart from the turkey fryer for a long time as do a lot of people on this forum. Did I have a couple of boilovers sure did but it was my fault as I wasn't paying attention to the boil. After the last one my wife said" Why don't you use a spray bottle with water like cooks do?" Never had one again even with a hard boil couple of shots knocks it right down .
