>>I just recently purchased a 10 gallon brewers edge kettle with ball valve from williams brewing and am looking to brew 5 gallon full boils and some 10 gallon partial boils as well. Is it possible to brew 10 gallon batch partial boils in a ten gallon pot?
What you can do for a 10 gallon batch is boil 8 gallons, use Fermcap to prevent a boil over, and then top off the fermentor with water after the boil. With Fermcap you can even try 9 gallons.
Without Fermcap I would suggest 6 gallons, and hover over the pot with a spray bottle of water to spray down the boil overs.
You might even try 7 gallons, but be ready to cut heat and spray like a mad man.
