You probably want at least a 12-16 quart pot, ideally 5 gallons for stovetop/extract brewing, like with a kit. With a kit, you aren't typically boiling the full volume of beer you are making, but you want to have some extra space for when your beer comes to a boil, as it will foam (called 'hot break'), and boilovers suck to clean up.
