I don't always get the freshest yeast so I would pitch the whole vial if it has some age to it

I have to look into there cloud stuff I haven't looked into that to much

Probably not. Use Mr.Malty and follow it exactly, if not overpitch. Probably almost a whole vial for such a big beer.

My last two gallon batches, both with 1.070 OG, needed 1.2 and 1.0 vials of liquid yeast according to Mr. Malty due to the age of the yeast. I actually under pitched for one since it was too late to make a starter. I probably wouldn't have made a starter anyway since it was relatively close.

I was a little off, the bottle is 1.75 liters, and maintains about a 10 degree drop from outside.

I'm using brew target, so I might be mistaken. I think you can export from most brewing software into an .xml file. That is one of the attachment types available here.

Can anyone think of a good reason for me not to use my 6 gallon aluminum stock pot for brewing?

6 gallon will work fine. You will just have to add a little extra sparge water on your 1-gal batches as the more surface area you have, the more you tend to boil off.

Also, make sure you boil water in it before you brew. That will give it an oxide layer that keeps the metallic flavor from getting in your beer.

i use a 6 gallon aluminum pot to do 1.25G brews. works great. I really have not seen extra boil off as a problem due to the more surface area, but then each setup is unique. I boil off 3/4 to almost one gallon. I am planning some 2.5 gallon batches so this will do both so i see it as having more options and not limiting me. also no chance of boil over

I use a 3 gallon SS stock pot from walmart, just like the one linked and got it for about $9.50ish.

I'll try to get some pictures of my stuff tomorrow while I am cooking up some stuff. Just bought a bunch more today for the week.

Just got home from a brew club meeting......Woohoooooo

And aluminum is fine as long as you build up a oxidation layer. My 10 gallon electric pot is aluminum only concern with the aluminum is it didn't hold a boil well with the element so I had to set the pid higher so I boiled off more.
